What we believe
Innovation Unit believes in the power and potential of people to create change for the better. Innovation is driven & liberated by:
• Human Potential – What people are capable of. • Agency – Their ability to create change in their own lives. • Collective Action – The energy that comes from people acting together to problems and create solutions.
What we do
Our approach to innovation is based on ten years working with ambitious partners in the UK, Australia and around the world. We do three things to create impact:
• High Impact Consultancy - Applying and sharing our expertise in what it takes to have impact through innovation at scale. • Initiating & Growing Ventures - Leading and contributing to alliances for change, and securing investment to grow new solutions ‘on the ground’ where we can make a significant impact. • Generating Demand for Innovation - Actively sharing what we think, believe and know about where innovation is needed and the positive change it can create.
