About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

After careful consideration, Nesta has taken the decision to postpone the Nesta Sparks session on Impact Investment. We’ll be keeping the situation under constant review and of course contacting our attendees, speakers and partners over the coming days to let them know. Our team have been actively exploring ways in which to bring our events to our audiences digitally and we hope to be able to reschedule some of our events very soon. If you have registered already registered for this event, we’ll be getting in touch and refunding your ticket very shortly. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on [email protected].

What is the event?

This Nesta Sparks event focuses on People Powered Results: the 100 day challenge. The 100 day challenge is a structured innovation process, combined with coaching support. It enables frontline staff from across a public services system to collaborate and rapidly experiment with new ways of working, to achieve better results for people and communities.

What is Nesta Sparks?

As part of our Insight event series, Nesta Sparks share Nesta’s practical knowledge around different ways to innovate. Each of the 14 Nesta Sparks sessions focus on a different method, whether it’s crowdfunding, challenge prizes, standards of evidence, or public and social innovation labs.

Who is it for and why should I come?

This event on People Powered Results offers you the opportunity to come together with other practitioners and experts to share knowledge and perspectives and to learn from Nesta’s work.

You’ll hear Nesta staff in conversation with other practitioners about how these innovation approaches are being used in practice, and you’ll have the chance to network and ask further questions.

Tickets are available at £7, which includes a light lunch and refreshments.
