More about Barnet’s Innovation Bank

As mentioned previously, Barnet’s Big Society Innovation Bank was launched last month to provide funding for individuals and not-for-profit groups who have innovative solutions for local problems.
On Friday 8th July, we held an Innovation Bank ideas festival at North London Business Park that was attended by about 80 people.
During the session, attendees discussed their ideas and received practical advice and feedback from a range of charity and social enterprise groups including Red Ochre, Involve, Social Enterprise Coalition and Social Enterprise London.
I’ve been really impressed with the volume and scope of the ideas that were suggested and the feedback from the people who attended was very positive.
