Meet your Leap 100 advisory board for 2016

Twenty-two entrepreneurs from last year’s Leap 100 have become advisers to this year’s programme. There is little chance of these founders slowing down to retire in the Cotswolds any time soon, but we managed to pin them down long enough for them to nominate their peers and upcoming entrepreneurs that they think should make up this year’s Leap 100 cohort.
