Meeting with Kieran Daly from FoodCycle I can almost scoop his energy up with a spoon, it’s that palpable. He is clearly talented and has a passion for FoodCycle’s mission to connect unwanted food, spare kitchen space and volunteers to create tasty meals for people in food poverty.

Over the last 18 months Nesta has been backing five ageing ventures and 50+ other ventures to encourage us all to give more of our time, money, assets and resources to others. The challenge now is to find the best recipe to scale the best of these ideas and to get as many as possible onto a street near you.

At Nesta we work increasingly with a number of platforms that aim to combine all the good things about local community networks with the organising power of an online platform. The idea is that through engaging on the two levels, the platform will be able to promote deep engagement in local areas, whilst mobilising many more people and extending networks much faster and further through using a web platform.

Earlier this year, the great visionary architect Paolo Soleri died at the age of 93. Soleri created the discipline of arcology; something he described as the fusion of architecture and ecology. He was a pioneer of passive design and off-grid environmental architecture and probably best known for designing and building Arcosanti; a community of dwellings deep within the Arizona desert.

For over three decades Marina Abramovic has been exciting and provoking us with her unique forms of performance art. Whether that be taking pills to induce comatose state; flagellating herself with a cat of nine tails whip or inviting an audience to mark her body with 72 objects of different kinds, we can safely call Abramovic a creative force, an innovator consistently challenging and breaking through boundaries.

What are we learning about scaling from the Innovation in Giving portfolio? It’s a huge question and one that elicits different answers from colleagues, but here are my thoughts to add to the pot based on the ventures I’m working with.
