Lab Fellowship 2018-19: now open for applications!

Following the ‘outstanding success’ of our 2017 programme, Lab Fellowship is back for 2018-19 – and this year’s theme is data.

We’re looking for innovations that harness the power of data to make finance serve people and planet – whether that’s building a digital community currency, using Open Banking to serve everyone in society, linking emissions data with investment decisions… or something else entirely!

Unlike any other incubator, Lab Fellowship is dedicated to financial innovators with a social or environmental mission and embeds purpose in every element of the curriculum. Over the course of nine months, you’ll work with our expert community to test and refine your products, build a purpose-driven business strategy, develop your leadership capability, and grow a network of contacts who’ll support you on the next stage of your journey.

Our expert faculty, drawn from the worlds of ethical finance, regulation and policy, social innovation and responsible technology, will help you tackle your business challenges and build a powerful set of tools to communicate your vision. You’ll leave the programme with a close community of support, a honed business strategy and a compelling slide deck – as well as relationships with investors who believe in your mission.

The nine-month, part-time programme is ideal for early-stage innovators who want to make a positive difference. The curriculum includes monthly business skills and peer coaching sessions, two intensive leadership retreats and high-profile launch and closing events that will ensure you stand out from the crowd.

Applications close at 9am on 5 November – find out more and apply here.
