diverse group of creative-looking people working together



Ingenuity is a network of leading universities, corporates, small and medium sized enterprises, as well as public and third sector organisations.

We work together to tackle key social and environmental issues through enterprise.

Over the coming weeks we will be announcing a range of new partners who are joining us to drive change nationally and regionally.

National Partner

The Ingenuity Programme is supported nationally by law firm Shakespeare Martineau.


Shakespeare Martineau is partnering with us for the fifth year running, having supported the programme since its inception in 2016. The firm will be providing legal, business development, and investment information, as well as business coaching, to help the creation and implementation of the next generation of business initiatives that will deliver sustainable social impact across the UK.


Challenge Partners

We are excited to be partnering with leading organisations and charities to create a range of challenges that will offer insight and focus across the programme. At this time it is vital that we all pull in the same direction – working closely with these national organisations will ensure we create solutions that add value to existing provision. Our Challenge Partners are:
