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. We provide coaching, workshops and mentoring support with an emphasis on business storytelling, business modelling, value propositions, prototyping, testing and pitching.

Harnessing Creativity

We develop new thinking, create a pipeline of ideas and support intrapreneurs to pitch their ideas to a peer led Judging panel. We also encourage team working and collaboration, sparking creativity.

Leveraging Investment

The Programme turns ideas in to action through an investment fund. Intrapreneurs test and prototype their idea which identifies those ready to scale and replicate.
