A Gathering of Curious Minds

Ethos

Creating Space for Exploration

We are a community of mission-aligned entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds and sectors, united by a shared appetite for understanding how lasting social change is achieved, and taking action.

Our team curates opportunities to learn from experts, explore evidence-led impact strategies, and share ideas. Our events range from intimate dinners to annual forums, and bring together the voices at the frontier of social impact. From charity founders and seminal intellectuals, to field researchers, unicorn CEOs, and visionary technologists.

Through our events, we intend to activate, educate, and interrogate. We go beyond simplistic solutions, aiming instead to ‘consciously complicate’, building our collective intelligence around social strategies, and adding new and diverse perspectives to the conversation.

I am extremely grateful to the Founders Pledge for making it so incredibly seamless to pay it forward as a business founder. I have received a huge amount of help over the past two years, and this goes a small way to repay some that where most needed. The collective good that can be achieved is colossal!

Physicist - Bicyclist - Designer - Entrepreneur. Emily began reading Physics at Oxford University, but left to study Product Design in Brighton and Milan before an entrepreneurial scholarship in America. At university Emily created a radical innovation to save cyclists' lives and started Blaze, to make it a reality. The company is only 2 years old, but after running one of the first successful Kickstarter campaigns in the UK, it has gone on to raise over £1.5M investment from the likes of Index Ventures, Pembroke VCT and the Branson Family. Their flagship product, the Laserlight, is shipping to 51 countries around the world and is the first in a range of products for urban cyclists. Blaze recently secured a contract with Transport for London to trial its Laserlights on 200 Santander Cycles with a view to extending to the entire fleet.
