Ingenuity 2019


Ingenuity19 provided an opportunity for disruptors, entrepreneurs and community innovators to come together to explore key challenges facing society.

There were three stages to the programme - Inspire, Develop and Compete.


Included a Future Communities Summit and a Future Technology Summit. 


A six week skills programme where participants were supported to turn their ideas into a costed business plan.


From a shortlist of 41 business ideas, the programme culminated in £150,000 being awarded to 18 new enterprises. 

Ingenuity19 was the first year that the programme was open to the public, with entries from across the city of Nottingham. Partners included​ leading UK Universities, corporate partners including Experian, as well as public and third sector organisations.

A final celebratory Awards Dinner in central Nottingham offered a vision of what could be achieved, impact felt and a model for future innovation.
