Social Impact

Ensuring everyone in business has the best possible chance to thrive

Our goal is to generate inclusive economic growth.

Promoting diversity and inclusion in business

Newable champions diversity and inclusion in business. As part of this ambition, we delivered the London Diverse Entrepreneurs Summit at City Hall for the Mayor of London and London Growth Hub with 100+ businesses from under-represented groups, organised a Global Business Innovation Programme with Israel for 15 UK female-led AI & Data businesses and the Fuelling Ambition Conference with 450+ London women entrepreneurs. We have supported women in construction and female-owned construction businesses under our supply chain programme.

We believe confidence transforms.

Enhancing Innovation Opportunities

Global Business Innovation Programmes offer ambitious UK companies the opportunity to explore and exploit innovation opportunities in specific markets, technology and innovation areas overseas. The programmes are funded by Innovate UK and delivered by the Enterprise Europe Network.

These programmes provide detailed market knowledge, introductions and cultural insight that enable small innovative businesses to accelerate their business growth through collaborations and partnerships in new markets.  These programmes also provide 12 months dedicated support from an Innovation Adviser.

In 2019, Innovate UK together with UK Science & Innovation Network Israel and the Enterprise Europe Network at Newable brought a delegation of some of the UK’s most promising women innovators in Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Data to Israel, as part of our Global Business Innovation Programme. This programme contributed to Innovate UK’s ongoing commitment to Women in Innovation and helped encourage diversity in innovation and showcase UK women-led businesses.
