Farewell 2017! An IoD 99 recap...

22 Dec 2017

Phew… what a year 2017 has been for our phenomenal network of start-up founders, co-founders and entrepreneurs! Amazing doesn’t even get close, so what were the highlights?

  • Our family has grown by over 1,000 members, and we now over circa 2,500 Founders in our community

  • We've held amazing start-up socials across the UK, from Bristol to Edinburgh, Cardiff to Norwich

  • We've had over 2,000 IoD99-ers attend our events in 2017

  • Filmed over 40 members for our IoD99Bites web-series, including a special feature in IoD Northern Ireland

  • We have taken two delegations and 40 members to meet senior advisers to the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street

  • We also took a delegation of members to the G20 Young Entrepreneurs' Alliance Summit in Berlin and became the official UK representative for the G20 YEA

  • And to close off the year we had over 100 members open the London Stock Exchange!

Although we rocked it in 2017, 2018 is going to be even bigger and better. You are all awesome and we are super excited to have you on our journey!
