Work with us

The Innovation Growth Lab brings together researchers, governments, non-profit organisations and innovative companies interested in contributing to make our economies more innovative and entrepreneurial.

We’re interested in collaborating with different types of organisations who, like us, want to understand how best to increase innovation, support high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerate business growth.

You may be interested in evaluating the impact of your activities, trial different designs of your programmes, support research projects in these areas, or be a researcher using randomised trials to grow the evidence base in this space.

There are different ways you can get involved with IGL, such as becoming an IGL Partner, joining the Research Network, running a trial with us or applying for an IGL Grant. 

Become an IGL partner

IGL partners are organisations directly engaged in supporting innovation, entrepreneurship and business growth, or with an interest in helping build the evidence base on the best approaches to do so. 

Join our network

The IGL Research Network brings together world-class researchers interested in randomised trials in the areas of innovation, entrepreneurship and business growth.

Run a trial with us

IGL runs trials with programme delivery organisations, governments and innovative companies who want to evaluate the impact of their programmes or experiment with new ones. 

Funding opportunities

 IGL invites researchers and programme managers to apply for an IGL Grant.

Running yearly, the IGL grants programme is funded by the Argidius Foundation, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and Nesta. The programme aims to support randomised trials that build the evidence base on the most effective approaches to increase innovation, support high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerate business growth.
