Learn more about Membership

We help ambitious leaders turn their mid-sized organisations into giants. Our mission is to double the number of large businesses in the UK from 7,500 to 15,000.

Our founder Richard Harpin took his company HomeServe from humble beginnings in 1993 to a sale for £4.1bn.

But like all successful business leaders, he suffered many setbacks along the way. But failure is often the key to unlocking success.

That’s why we have created our peer-to-peer membership, where CEOs and founders can learn from and challenge each other in a safe and confidential environment.

Will you come with us on our journey? If you’re ambitious, motivated and willing to share your expertise with others, apply now to join our Founders 250 and form the bedrock of our community.
