How to follow the Leap 100 in 2016

The Leap 100 isn’t a passive programme. Every month the pages of City A.M. and this dedicated section will be ablaze with stories about the trials and tribulations of the founders we’re following. Readers can discover what inspired them to start the business, how they overcame their biggest challenges, and what they attribute their success to.

These profiles will be based on breakfasts put on by The Entrepreneurs Network – a think tank for the ambitious owners of Britain’s fastest growing businesses and aspirational entrepreneurs. The first three will feature Stephen Rapoport of Pact Coffee, Glen Calvert of Affectv, and Rytis Vitkauskas of YPlan as keynote speakers.

As well as a forum for Leap 100 founders, a few places at these breakfasts will be given to entrepreneurs on the cusp of making their own leap. Visit to find out more.

If you want to dig a little deeper, bookmark this portal at It already has full profiles about each company and will include more detailed polling data based on the views of 100 of the country’s most vital entrepreneurs. Also, keep up with City A.M. through our new @theleap100 Twitter handle and #theleap100 hashtag.

In addition, The Supper Club, the UK’s leading membership club exclusively for fast growth entrepreneurs and chief executives, will open their Master Classes and Growth Programmes to Leap 100 members. For entrepreneurs looking to get involved with the Supper Club, visit to find out more about their Many Heads introductory breakfasts.

And if you’re awake at 9am on Saturday morning, Mishcon de Reya’s Elliot Moss will interview some of the Leap 100 companies over the course of the year on Jazz Shapers on Jazz FM. (If you’re still catatonic at 9am, you can catch up through their website).

If all this doesn’t convince the non-entrepreneurs among you to take the leap of starting your own business, nothing will!
