NextGen Founders is a 12-month programme that will run from August 2020 to September 2021, consisting of tailor made, structured tasks and activities to meet the practical needs of participants. We’ll connect monthly via online meetings and at a get together in January, as well as at the 2020 and 2021 NextGen Summits.

The first Cohort of 10 participants will be selected from the NextGen Summit 2020 group.
