The Develop Platform

The Develop Platform is the skills and training element of Ingenuity.

An online learning platform featuring the best of knowledge and insights from leading industry, charity and academic leaders, as well as those already running enterprises that are changing the world we live in.

Your Ingenuity journey will lead you through Insights and then on to Tutorials, the two stages of Develop.


Insights features exclusive interviews with leaders from the UK’s top charities, NGOs, impact entrepreneurs, investors and corporate social responsibility specialists. These inspirational videos and resources will help you choose which of our Challenges to tackle and where to focus your idea.
