ICE cubes

We love to think inside the box

We love to think inside the box

Our events are the best. But we wanted more. Our ICE Cubes are smaller, carefully curated groups who meet regularly - providing deep support, ongoing advice and a proper investment in each-other’s development.

It’s hard to overstate the value of having a team of brilliant people who have your back, without any pressure. An entrepreneur’s journey can be lonely. We decided to change that.

What do we stand for?

Our values

Our values

The values are what unites us as a community and hopefully conveys the spirit of ICE that our members know (and love). These values help inform how we work and play together, how we are and how we want to be.

Direction

Growth

We’re all about becoming better - professionally and personally. We help accelerate brilliant business minds by connecting them with like-minded souls.

Gift

Friendship

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.

Meeting

Respect

No-one is above anyone else. Whether you’re just starting out, or are battle-scarred from years on the front line, we all have experience to share, and something valuable to say.

Lightning

Contribution

With ICE, you get out what you put in. We contribute in the knowledge that everyone else is doing the same. We learn from one another constantly, and it’s this amazing energy that helps propel us all forwards.

Fire

Overfunning

The joy of ICE is that it takes place outside our day to day and adds colour to our lives. It’s a reset button, it’s another dimension, it’s like nothing else in our lives. In short, it’s exactly what we need…

Our members

To get a flavour of who is part of ICE, here’s a selection of the company you'd keep as a member.

An idea this good must run itself…

It absolutely doesn’t. ICE is run by volunteers who give up their time and talent because they believe in what we’re doing here.
