We're focused on addressing social and environmental global or local challenges and creating positive impact
We work on a range of funded projects, from supporting Agetech innovators help elderly people stay in their homes for longer, to the creation of modular homes providing affordable housing.
We started to run free business support programmes in 2013 to help entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground, help start-ups to grow and scale, and help ventures to create more impact. Our teams of business advisors and mentors work with founders to help them to succeed.
We led a housing project working with Jimmy’s, a homelessness charity in Cambridge and New Meaning Foundation, an ethical construction social enterprise. Six private modular homes were built to provide much needed community housing – and since then further projects are being scoped across the country.
“The evidence suggests that providing modular homes in tandem with robust support services has the potential to improve outcomes for people experiencing homelessness”

We are active in Agetech projects, which support and trial innovative solutions, products and services for older people so that they can remain at home for longer.
