Founders Forum gather their global network at Gleneagles

13 January 2022

Founders Forum gathered their global network of the world's most inspirational founders, global leaders, investors and rising stars in The Glorious Playground at Gleneagles, to share ideas and create meaningful relationships.

The event Founders Forum 100 is the first of its kind and provides the opportunity to an invite-only community within the tech industry and beyond, to come together on a retreat and have exciting conversations.

The Founders Forum team had a clear vision on what they wanted to achieve with this event. Their ambitions were to celebrate global entrepreneurship by bringing their network together over the course of two days in a relaxed environment, to connect and learn from each other, forge strong relationships and experience the best Scotland has to offer from culinary to country pursuits, all in the 850 acre setting of Gleneagles.

We worked closely with Founders Forum to bring their vision alive, collaborating on ideas and creating the ideal itinerary to allow the delegates to fully emerge themselves in the Glorious Playground at Gleneagles. The success of the event was based on this collaborative relationship, ensuring clear communication from start to finish for all stakeholders, and across all departments.

Between the networking sessions, country pursuits and culinary delights, we were able to create special moments for the Founders Forum delegates to have a taste what Scotland has to offer. Taking inspiration from our unique surroundings we provided the founders of the tech world with surprise and delight moments that were in fact very low tech… such as an after-dinner pipe band performance and guided crisp countryside walks. Giving delegates time to be inspired and network, but also time to reflect and engage in new surroundings.

 “We are delighted to be working with Gleneagles for this FF100 partnership and are so thrilled with the attention to detail, the great care that the staff take over all of our guest. Everyone has loved the rhythm of the event, which includes all of these great outdoor activities and the beautiful rooms across the hotel”

Jesse Peterkin, head of events at Founders Forum

 “The experience at Gleneagles is very similar to the experience of an event in an international city, where you have all that you need under one roof. However, you are in this amazing setting of the Scottish Highlands, away from the busyness, which calms people and allows you to reconnect with yourself, while having an amazing luxury service that you would expect in an international city. What was surprising was the attention to detail, from beginning to the end. From contracting to the delivery of the event, everything was very well delivered, in a timely matter and very personalised to each guest and member of the team, which made us feel very confident. It was great to see how many resources they could pull, even in the middle of the Highlands. Service that went above and beyond the experience I have had in International cities”.
