FAQs

What is Intrapreneurship?

Simply put, ‘intrapreneurship’ is acting like an entrepreneur within an organisation.

Who can apply?

We know that it is often the people closest to the problem who have the best ideas. The fund and idea development programme are open to all across Clackmannanshire. 

How can I develop my idea? 

Ideas will be shortlisted by a panel of members from the Family Wellbeing Partnership. If your idea is shortlisted, The Lens will help you develop the tools, skills and confidence you need to pitch for investment from this fund.

By helping you develop the skills and mindset of an entrepreneur, our team will help you turn your idea into action, improving people’s livelihoods in the process. Through practical workshops, coaching and peer support, we’ll ensure you have everything you need to ask for funding and turn your idea into a reality.

How can I get involved?

Applications are now open and will close on 27th January 2023. You can submit your application by emailing housing@clacks.gov.uk.

Who are The Lens?

The Lens is an independent charity that works with organisations across the Public, Private and Third Sectors.

Founded in 2015, The Lens team have over seven years’ experience delivering support to organisations that want to better their services and by extension, the lives of those who access them. They strongly believe that those closest to the problem are the best equipped to solve it, so a key part of their work is providing frontline staff and volunteers the opportunity to feedback on services and share their ideas on how to improve them.

The Lens will be delivering a set of activation workshops over the coming weeks which will provide you the opportunity to share your ideas.

Shortlisted applicants will continue to attend regular workshops and mentoring sessions with The Lens, all of which are designed to help you develop the tools, skills and confidence you need to successfully secure investment in your idea.

You can find out more about The Lens and the work they’ve supported.
