We aim to boost innovative potential - to help individuals and organisations design and grow better ideas, which can improve the quality of many peoples’ lives.

We judge our success in diverse ways – in investment through growing social impact, capital value and pioneering new types of finance; in research through the quality and influence of our analysis and ideas; in the Innovation Lab through the reach and depth of the ventures and projects we back, including both direct impact and the way that our work influences public policy.

Our goal over the next five years is to become better at doing all these things:

- to grow our global reputation as a centre for the understanding and practice of innovation
- to help great innovations achieve impact at scale
- to extend our reach by evolving into a network of collaborating organisations
- and to pioneer new methods of tapping great ideas and collective brainpower for the common good.
