Our relationship with Nesta

As a global innovation foundation, Nesta brings bold ideas to life to change the world for good. Nesta uses its expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society. Nesta has also used investment as a way of supporting innovation since it was founded over 20 years ago.

Our investment work at Nesta Impact Investments overlaps extensively with Nesta’s wider activity. We focus on the same themes and share knowledge about the significant challenges faced by society and the emerging solutions that will change lives for the better.

Many of these solutions need investment to achieve scale and sustainability. This provides a unique opportunity for investors to back enterprises creating products and services that will change the world for good. This makes these enterprises more resilient to change in an era of economic development shaped by the rapidly changing forces of technology, resource sustainability and demographics.
