We design, test and scale new solutions to society’s biggest problems, changing millions of lives for the better.
Our ambitious 10-year strategy aligns our efforts behind three innovation missions working to promote a fairer start, a healthy life, and a sustainable future.
We want to advance equity, diversity and inclusion in every dimension of what we do and hold ourselves accountable for the results.
We're passionate about what we do. Find out more about the people behind our work.
We have a strong track record of incubating and growing new organisations that go on to form a crucial part of the innovation ecosystem. Three key enterprises we've helped build will remain close members of the Nesta family.
Our work is primarily UK-based and we have offices in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff. Through our networks and specialist enterprises we also work closely with partners around the world.
Today’s Nesta is very different from the organisation that launched back in 1998.
There are lots of easy ways to connect with us.
Our work and culture is built on the foundations of our four values.
