The Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship was established in 2011 to equip and inspire entrepreneurs, innovators and the leaders who design the ecosystems in which they thrive. The bedrock of the Institute is rigorous research in a field that is too often driven by popular wisdom.


In recent years, governments and organisations everywhere have woken up to the importance of innovation as a primary means of driving growth, creating wealth, improving well-being and solving many of the world’s chronic problems. Vast amounts of corporate and public resource as well as entrepreneurial energy are invested in generating and scaling new ideas. We want to ensure that this investment creates real impact by providing evidence-based insights and strategies to all those who drive innovation.
