2018 Programme

Finance is changing – fast.

Rapid transformation is underway as it becomes easier to collect, combine and interpret our data. With this come risks around consent, control, bias and exploitation – but also opportunities to put people back in control of finance.

In 2018-19, the Finance Innovation Lab will find and incubate the best ideas for making data-driven finance work for people and planet.

Ideation Events

Our ideation events convene experts and entrepreneurs in finance, tech, policy and civil society to explore new ways to make finance more responsible, democratic and fair.

Join us to generate and test new ideas about how we can harness the power of data in finance to tackle our most pressing social and environmental needs.

More dates coming soon

Fellowship

Lab Fellowship is a unique, part-time programme proven to develop business and leadership skills of pioneering innovators in finance. Our expert faculty, drawn from the best leaders, advocates, entrepreneurs and investors in purpose-driven finance, combine deep financial and tech expertise with extensive experience of building and leading social ventures.

In 2018 we’ll recruit a brilliant new cohort of innovators putting purpose at the heart of data-driven finance.

Could you be one of our new Fellows? Let us know ahead of autumn, when we will open for applications.

For me the Fellowship has been a game-changer. It’s had a huge impact on the way I work, and how I feel about what I’m doing. It was so timely for me to take part, and has been hugely beneficial.”

It was really important for me to become self-aware about the values that my business is being built upon. The sessions on purpose and culture gave me the the tools to build the business I want.

There is such a huge amount of trust between us, and we are continuing to support each other and to work together to share contacts and resources. The biggest resource is the collective. We need to grow the collaboration, and I want to give back to the Lab and to future Fellows.
