The criteria is ambition and aptitude rather than money or background. We look at your achievements and your potential and this is what is crucial.


Collegium is a network for the most talented, ambitious and impressive young people from around the planet who are the leaders of the future in their respective fields, communities and the world as a whole. Our name derives from the Latin for ‘joined together’ and we are a multi-disciplinary community for those looking to make their mark, change the world and create their own dent in the universe.

We passionately believe in the power of networking, collaboration and connectivity for the betterment of the world. We appreciate that in addition to what you know, who you know is of huge importance and by creating connections between the rising stars of the future and equipping them with the networks and help they need, we provide the best platform for their success. Together we are greater than the sum of our parts. From this we hope to see the most exciting innovations, the most creative content and the greatest impact and positive change to the world.

Together we provide an environment equipped with all the necessary tools for success: like-minded and talented people; experienced mentors; invaluable guidance and advice; a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere with fascinating events; theoretical knowledge and practical skills; and access to capital and contacts required on every step of the way – in short the fertile soil, light and water for our bright superstars to grow and flourish.

Individual members of the network are selected from applications and recommendations (from people and via our Artificial Intelligence algorithms). They are the businesspeople, the entrepreneurs, the investors, the medics, the lawyers, the bankers, the consultants, the politicians, the creatives, the thinkers, the social changers and people from a wide range of different disciplines who will be running the world in the next 10-15 years and be pioneers in their challenging fields/industries. The criteria for entry is not a membership fee, nor is necessarily based on where you have studied but is on merit based upon what you have achieved so far and the talent, energy, ambition, initiative, steadfastness, impact and potential you have demonstrated. We recognise and accept only the very best of the best talent and shape today’s most excellent young people into the most prominent innovators, leaders and changemakers of the future. Our aim is to help our members prosper and succeed in their lives and careers and for them to better the world we live in and we work hard to provide them with the best platform from which to maximise and unleash their potential. We have created a network that allows for EVERYONE TO WIN and a key part of our vision is for our members not just to help their fellow members, but also the rest of the wider world around them. Our access programmes with regards to University applications, careers and mentorship are a key part of this.

We connect our members online through social media (including LinkedIn and Facebook), on our intranet of invaluable resources to help our members and in person through events in regions. We also have a global annual summit and the annual Collegium Top 100 list which recognises the very best of our network, and the wider world, each year.
