Nesta is a global innovation foundation. We back new ideas to tackle the big challenges of our time, from the pressures of an ageing population to stretched public services and a fast-changing jobs market. Using the team’s knowledge, networks, funding and skills. We work hard to see new opportunities and challenges; spark creative answers from many sources; shape brilliant ideas into practical solutions; and then shift whole systems in a new direction. We believe that innovation – the creation and adoption of new ideas – is the key to human progress, prosperity and happiness. But too often innovation doesn’t back the things that really matter to people. We want to make innovation work for everyone – growing new ideas that tackle the challenges our society faces and change the world for the better.
