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 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.
Our CEO, Steve McCreadie, made the front page of the Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce Business Bulletin when he was interviewed about The Lens and its ambition to transform the capability of the Third Sector.
