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.

While this strategy is founded on extensive consultations with Nesta staff, partners and people with lived experience, coupled with deep analysis of the EDI evidence base, we still have much more to learn.

We will strive to be humble as we learn from the experiences of others, and be inquisitive to teach ourselves what we don’t know. We invite challenge and collaboration as we commit to the shared goal of greater equality and inclusion. We will not get it right every time, but we commit to sharing our progress, our learnings and our failings with the hope of helping to uplift and propel the EDI movement in the UK and beyond.
