Ingenuity is back! We’re delighted to announce that registrations for the 2022-23 programme are now open.
The Ingenuity Programme exists to drive social mobility and tackle the UK’s major social and environmental challenges through the creation of innovative start-ups.
We’re open to everyone, no matter your background or experience.
So if you’re interested in developing your entrepreneurial skills, meeting likeminded changemakers, and want to build stronger, healthier, more inclusive communities, then sign up for the programme today!
Rooted in the concept of civic entrepreneurship, Ingenuity brings together students, graduates and members of the local community to develop new start-ups that can create meaningful and significant impact.
We want to cultivate a community of innovative and empathetic entrepreneurs ready to rethink and reshape our society from the bottom up.
Gain one-on-one support from specialist mentors to develop your idea into a business plan and be in with a chance of receiving significant investment and support.
With a strong commitment to promoting inclusive and diverse entrepreneurship, we have created a flexible programme designed to fit alongside your work, study or family commitments.
We’re proud to say our 2022 National Finalists were 50% BAME and 59% women and are eager to continue to engage innovators from under-represented and underserved groups across the UK.
Through our Ingenuity Skills Hub, you will be able to access learning resources and tutorials to help you build your skills as a civic entrepreneur and start making a difference in your community.
