They have spent over 30 years collectively building leadership teams within the Digital and Technology sectors helping start-ups scale and corporates innovate.

The event will consider:

Leap 100 Breakfasts

These breakfast meetings are small, informal affairs. We restrict them to 18 people – mostly the founders of Leap 100 companies. Our principal guest kicks off with roughly 10 minutes of introductory remarks; a light breakfast is served; and ideas and experiences are exchanged under Chatham House Rules. Attendees find them to be a useful forum for speaking candidly and learning from other successful entrepreneurs.

Sophie Eden & Sam Gordon

Sophie and Sam have spent their whole careers in digital and technology recruitment and set Gordon & Eden up four years ago. They are the first search firm to focus on connecting the start-up and corporate worlds and have already had five takeover bids, won multiple awards and been profiled on BBC News. Between them they have completed over 1000 assignments.
