Lessons from our global panel at Good Incubation
Nesta’s offices were abuzz with international inspiration last week as we brought together social impact incubators from around the world for the launch of Good Incubation.
With the support of the Cabinet office we were able to bring together the UK social incubation community, including impact accelerators, co-working spaces and impact investors, alongside programmes operating in Nigeria, Brazil, Mexico, East Africa, the US and Sweden.
While each programme had a unique experience to share, there were some key themes and lessons that came across, such as the post-incubation funding gap, the challenge of creating a sustainable business model and the increasing focus on measurement and evaluation. Find out more from our international speakers in the videos below.
