Join Our Family

ICE exists for us to help each other be better leaders
in business and better people in life.

Who can become a member?

Membership is curated by your local chapter Membership Committee, who are mandated to apply the membership criteria fairly and objectively.

ICE thrives on members who are open to share their experiences and give actively to the community. Our full membership criteria is outlined below;

High-growth

ICE is focused on the high-growth tech ecosystem. We are a community of ambitious Founders who are growing their businesses exponentially.

Tech-centric

We specifically serve Founders of high growth companies whose core product/service is tech-centric or predominantly tech-enabled.

Founder-focused

We are centred around Founders, while also selectively welcoming relevant and prominent investors (angels and VC’s) who are actively investing in high-growth tech companies.

Stage-agnostic

Our Founders run businesses from early to late stage. We do ask that they have a minimum degree of traction (>£350k ($400K) capital raised and/or >5 full time staff).
Transparency is a key part of our philosophy. You can see who does what on our ICE Team page.

ICE Values

These are the values we stand by and that we ask all members uphold:

Growth

We're all about becoming bigger and better - both professionally and personally. We want to be better bosses, but we want to be better people, too.

Contribution

With ICE you get out what you put in. As individuals we contribute our knowledge, our time, our understanding. It's this amazing energy that keeps us learning & ICE running.

Respect

Whether just starting out, in the midst of a career, or a battle scarred veteran, we all have experience to share and something valuable to say. ICE flourishes because it is a place of trust and mutual respect.

Overfunning

The joy of ICE is that is takes place via day-trips, delagations, action holidays, dinners and nights out - it's a reset button. In short, it's exactly what we need.

Kinship

We support each other during the highs and lows of being a Founder. We are there for each other with handkerchiefs or champagne. We are an ICE family.

Can I only join a chapter if I live nearby?

You can join whichever chapter you choose though we recommend of course you choose the one nearest geographically to you. Alternatively you could start one!
