It’s been a really busy few weeks for We Do Ideas. Since concluding the successful pilot contract with Northampton University we have been busy reviewing and consolidating our adventures in ideas generation in order to produce an Ideation Toolkit. Most importantly We Do Ideas has been busy hobnobbing with some very influential characters and having some exciting developments.
We Do Ideas kicked off its memorable fortnight by officially setting up as an independent business. After an invaluable incubation period under the tender loving care of the Young Foundation venture support team We Do Ideas Ltd is now a fully fledged grown up and has some great plans for projects in 2012.
Next up We Do Ideas took a lecture to budding entrepreneurs at Kings College London College on Friday to raise awareness on Social Enterprise models. A few days later, the We Do Ideas intern Rebecca Birch helped to spread the We Do word at none other than 10 Downing Street where she was lucky to support Tony Colville in facilitating Business Generation Model canvas workshops and networking with the Big Society Award winners. Some inspiring conversations were had with charities, social enterprises and corporates alike about ideas generation and the role social enterprise in today’s financial climate.
Later the same week, We Do Ideas Director Rebecca Coppock and intern Rebecca B were fortunate to meet with HRH Princess Anne at the NIACE conference on Learning for Citizenship. Princess Anne took a keen interest in the work being carried out by We Do Ideas and both Rebecca’s took part in a lively round table discussion headed by HRH around the role of learning in supporting environments for active citizenship in the UK.
