Nesta is an independent charity with a mission to help people and organisations bring great ideas to life.

Get Funding


We support a small number of exceptional ideas that meet our aims as a charity, and if we can't help there are plenty who can. We have three different ways that we can support you - through grant funding, direct investment or challenge prizes.


Creative Business Mentor Network
We provide creative companies with one-to-one mentoring with some of the most successful business people in the creative sector.


Investment for Impact
We're looking for organisations that can show a high potential for social impact, and a business model that can produce a return on our investment.
