Support our changemakers

We forge long-term collaborative relationships with our partnership network to create impact locally, regionally, and nationally. Whether you are looking to partner with us individually, or as an organisation, you can get involved with Ingenuity at every stage of the programme.

Become a mentor

We are looking for industry specialists to support our finalists to develop their idea into a viable business solution. Whether you are a business or third sector expert, you can volunteer as an Ingenuity mentor to use your skills and experience to support the next generation of changemakers.

Mentoring activity for the 2023/24 programme will commence in January 2024.

Deliver a training session

We are always looking for innovative and impactful organisations to support the learning and development of our changemakers. If you have lived or professional experience that can help our participants turn their ideas for change into impactful new businesses, we’d love to hear from you! If you have an idea for a workshop or training session, or would like to get involved in our programme of workshops, please get in touch.

Contribute to the Skills Hub

The Ingenuity Skills Hub is the online learning platform that underpins the Ingenuity Programme. It features industry insights and expert tutorials to help participants identify and develop their idea. We are always interested in connecting with experts in business development, impact modelling, financial planning, organisational development, sales, and marketing, in order to provide our participants with the best of industry knowledge.
