National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA)

The National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) is an innovation charity with a mission to help people and organisations bring great ideas to life.

The Gulbenkian Foundation put forward £60,000 to support the evaluation of the Arts Ventures Fund and the impact analysis of the ventures supported through it. The pilot Fund will test the proposition that access to appropriate investment would enable arts organisations to build their capacity for social impact and income generation.
