What is the Lens?

The Lens improves people’s lives. We do this through our Intrapreneurship Programme which develops staff and ideas in mission driven organisations. We encourage the organisations we partner with to create new ways of thinking and working. Our work develops the skills, knowledge and confidence of staff at all levels to be more creative and help them turn their ideas into action. Our job is to help people to think and see differently – you just need to look through a different lens.


How it works

Developing Talent

The Lens develops people and ideas It offers a range of coaching, workshop and mentoring support, with emphasis on corporate storytelling, business modelling, value proposition, prototyping, testing and pitching.

Competitive process

Central to The Lens is a competition where participants have the opportunity to pitch their ideas before an panel of Judges, who are peers of the intrapreneurs, in order to secure investment.

Investment fund

Our Partners put up an investment fund which is allocated to winning pitches. This funding enables intrapreneurs to test their idea making them ready to scale and replicate across the organisation and beyond.
