A massive thank you to all our partners who fell in love with the FEBE philosophy, believe in our vision, and who are now joining us on our mission to celebrate the UK’s greatest founders.



We’re extremely proud of our partnership with FEBE, supporting the founders of the UK’s most innovative fast-growth businesses, all critical to the UK economy. The FEBE community have a common denominator – they’re all risk takers – and we’re delighted PwC’s community of solvers with their knowledge and experience can support them as they continue to achieve their ambitions. At PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. Through our network of firms in 155 countries we have over 327,000 people committed to delivering quality across assurance, advisory and tax services.



Lawrence Stephens is a proud partner to FEBE. With a team led by Steven Bernstein (one of the founders of Lawrence Stephens), we welcome the opportunity to get to know fellow-founders and to help them achieve their aims of establishing and growing their businesses. Unlike a normal list, FEBE provides founders with regular opportunities to share their experiences and challenges in a mutually beneficial and non-judgemental environment. At Lawrence Stephens we specialise in providing proactive, expert advice to ambitious businesses and individuals for all their legal needs. A unifying theme is that our clients are entrepreneurial, growing enterprises who require practical and commercial advice from advisers who understand them. We are committed to investing into these relationships and to help founders throughout their journey.

It offers only wealth management, asset management, alternative investments, and related asset services. The Group does not engage in investment banking, nor does it extend commercial loans. With CHF 633 billion (EUR 681 bn /USD 752 bn /GBP 590 bn) in assets under management or custody on 31 December 2023, Pictet is today one of the leading Europe-based independent wealth and asset managers for private clients and institutional investors. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, and founded there, Pictet today employs over 5,400 people and has 30 offices worldwide.



We are thrilled to partner with FEBE, an organisation that truly champions founders and the entrepreneurial spirit.
