The value of EF lasts far beyond the end of the platform. We often see EFers hire, advise, invest in, buy from, sell to, and support each other.

The mindsets, habits, and relationships you develop at EF should last a lifetime. As one alumni put it, EF is life acceleration.

“I came to EF to find a co-founder, and left with a network of the world’s most inspiring upcoming talent and a belief in the seemingly impossible: strangers to seed funded in 6 months.”

Our community is home to the founders of high-growth, globally ambitious companies - with extraordinary expertise and experience.

From Rohit, who sold his first computer programme to his school aged 12, and Sasha, who worked with Professor Stephen Hawkings on black holes during her PhD, to Rayna, a doctor and neuroscientist previously at Cambridge, Harvard and MIT.
