The Ideas Mine is a thinking business. Our work starts with careful research and analysis, which gives us the clues we need to unravel complex issues and then present simple, insightful solutions.
We offer a range of enterprise development services from supporting early-life businesses to get started to helping established social businesses to grow and thrive.
We have extensive experience of brokering social investment for social businesses and specialise in approaches to capturing social value.
We work with social businesses to identify problems, implement improvements and quantify progress.

The Ideas Mine has just celebrated its tenth anniversary. Over that time we have worked with a wide range of voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, helping to build them (and sometimes the buildings they work from) and position them to achieve their potential.

We specialise in

  • Strategic business development
  • Social investment strategy and development
  • Social Return on Investment
  • Asset development
  • Governance and board development
  • Product development
  • Policy development
