Ingenuity helps create start-ups and initiatives within organisations that deliver sustainable social impact across the UK. The programme is delivered via an online insight and learning platform, regional 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 starts with a Challenge. Participants will choose one of four pathways: Create Prosperity, Build Communities, Improve Health and Tackle Climate Change.
Our goal is to discover the Future Founders who will create impact-focused start-ups and lead the change towards a better and more inclusive future.
Ingenuity will also work with motivated individuals within organisations and help them develop as Regional Pioneers, so that their organisations can drive positive change in their local communities.
Across the East Midlands universities and local government are working together to deliver a regional programme that explores Ingenuity’s Challenges from a regional perspective and aims to drive social and environmental change through enterprise.
