We invest in ventures with inclusive and scalable social innovations that are run by outstanding entrepreneurs.
We want to see the power of innovation and technology used to solve major social problems, bringing the benefits of innovation to everyone in society. We help to do this by investing in ventures with inclusive and scalable innovations that are run by outstanding entrepreneurs. We are an experienced team of sector experts, venture capitalists, impact investors and evaluators backed by a strong, innovative institution - Nesta.
Committed to supporting outstanding entrepreneurs, we bring the skills, networks and resources of our team and from across Nesta, to support social ventures to deliver on their mission, in particular, those backing challenges in education and employability, healthcare, and communities.
We offer equity, revenue-sharing arrangements, and loans to companies that are past the 'proof of concept' stage, and where there is evidence of impact and revenue generation. We are unable to offer grants, sponsorship, or funding for research.
