With Wayra Open Future one of the earliest examples, we run events, conduct research and gather partners in a effort to understand its growing impact.

Wayra recently lead on a project alongside Simon Fanshawe OBE and a coalition of partners, including TechCity UK, BBC Labs and Virgin Start Up, to reveal the social makeup of Britain’s start-up ecosystem. This was the first research project of its kind to look into the inherent and acquired DNA of those working in UK-based, mainly digital, early-stage start-ups. The research found that diversity can drive the acceleration of businesses and evoke entrepreneurialism. Click here to find out more about startupDNA.
