“At FutureX, we believe that business – and particularly purpose-led business – is one of the greatest vehicles on the planet for positively impacting people's lives," Ms Kanatounatou said.

"Our consultancy is for bold, ambitious and driven entrepreneurial leaders who want to scale up commercially and have a passion for using business as a force for good.”

FutureX said it will continue to run a select number development courses for founders and provide access to resources to its members. The consultancy will allow the team to utilise its expertise and global network to achieve maximum impact for clients.
