Who can join IoD 99?
IoD 99 membership is aimed to actively support entrepreneurs, who might not have previously held senior roles in companies. As such there are a number of criteria in place that need to be met to join the network, these are:
- Be a founder or co-founder of your own business
- Have an annual turnover of less than £3m
- Have been established for 5 years or less
- Have not been an IoD member in the past two years
We want to do all we can to support you on your entrepreneurial journey, so if you have not quite got to the stage of launch yet, but you hope to be there within the year, we would love to have you in the network to support you as you launch and grow.
Your first year in the IoD 99 is a straight forward £99. However we understand that it takes more than a year to scale up (unless you are super lucky!) and as such we have put in place a journey to take you towards full membership. We hope this will support you and help ensure you can continue to get the very most out of being a 99er.
We have created two streams, one to help reward those 99ers who are able to support the growth of the network and one where this might not be possible.
