Nesta is an innovation charity with a mission to help people and organisations bring great ideas to life.

They are dedicated to supporting ideas that can help improve all our lives, with activities ranging from early stage investment to in-depth research and practical programmes.

They support a small number of exceptional ideas that meet their aims as a charity, and if they can’t help there are plenty who can. Nesta have three different ways to support organisations – through grant funding, direct investment or challenge prizes.
