Imperial College X santander.
Challenger lab is a collaborative and highly-practical experience for a new generation of innovative managers.
We brought MBAs from Imperial Business School together with startup founders from Founders of the Future and intrepreneurs from Santander to solve customer-focused FinTech challenges. The fast-paced two-day programme resulted in an enthused, inspired cohort. New friendships. Opportunities. And most importantly, five new innovation business cases. Three of these are already flagged for integration into key activity within Santander's consumer banking product verticals.

from need to product.
From hack to idea to prototype to business case. This year we helped the Minister for Disability and the Office for Disability Issues to develop prototypes that tackle accessibility issues. From user input at a hackathon, we developed concepts through to wireframe models, MVPs and a micro-pitches, presented in the Houses of Parliement. Two of the three concepts were commercialised by the community.
