Yesterday was my last day at The Lens and wow what a journey! The Lens invests in people and their ideas, it's life changing for people that take part, but it’s also been transformational for me too.
The Lens is excited to launch the call for Partners for our third Shared Intrapreneurship Programme, supported by the William Grant Foundation and Scottish Government. There are up to six places available on the Programme for medium sized charities. We’re looking for innovative organisations to get in touch to talk to us about the difference intrapraneurship can make in the delivery of your mission.
The Lens CEO, Steve McCreadie, has been reflecting on what our intrapreneurs in The Lens have told us about why they come forward with ideas. And more importantly what appeared to hold them back a little.
In this blog he explores a key question in what motivates people.
A group of twelve intrapreneurs from Scottish social care charity, Cornerstone, partner of The Lens, took to the stage on Wednesday 11th May to present their business innovation ideas to a panel of judges to secure part of a £20,000 investment pot.
With applications starting to come in from budding intrapreneurs of each of The Lens partner charities, we wanted to showcase the training and support that will be made available to you, the intrapreneur, if you're chosen to pitch your idea at The Lens Final.
