84 new Future Leaders Fellows and £100m for next round announced

For those of you who aren’t aware of the Future Leaders Fellowship we thought it worth a call out, we are involved with the review process and also work with one of the future leaders so understand what a great initiative it is. We also spotted that one of the awards went to a local company, FutureLeap employee so big congratulations to William Frier.
