Since 2016, Ingenuity’s mission has been to find bold new ideas that make a difference to the world we live in.
Ingenuity helps create start-ups, as well as initiatives within organisations, that deliver sustainable social impact across the UK. The programme is delivered via an online insight and learning platform, Challenge Summits and a national business plan competition with significant investment and support.
As we emerge from the global crisis created by the Covid-19 pandemic, Ingenuity and its partners are committed to explore the big issues we face and help drive recovery to rebuild our economy and society.
Ingenuity is a partnership of the UK’s most innovative academic, commercial, public and third sector organisations. Ingenuity’s 20/21 programme will be in the East Midlands, West Midlands, the West of England, and across the South Coast.
Ingenuity starts with a Challenge to use business to solve the UK’s biggest social and environmental issues. Our goal is to discover Future Founders, the next generation of impact focused start-ups. And Regional Pioneers driving change from within existing organisations.
Ingenuity offers a comprehensive programme of insight and inspiration, collaboration and partnership, skills and training, and business plan creation and investment.
