We invited participants to take part in three subsequent scenario planning workshops

We invited participants to take part in three subsequent scenario planning workshops with Oxford University, looking at the future of finance, momentum built and over time we hosted more and more events, asking participants to call out areas of innovation within the financial system that they believed could bring about large scale. We asked them to cluster around the ideas that inspired them and turned the best ones into projects, securing funding and resources. Many of these failed, but some of them flew. The Natural Capital Coalition, now a multi-million dollar programme looking at business’ impact on the environment and works with stakeholders including big accounting firms and The World Bank amongst others, was born at a Lab event. We convened the CEOs of the peer to peer lending market and the Treasury announced a change in regulation for the industry, at one of our events.
