Finance for promising ideas usually takes the form of small grants for social entrepreneurs, or groups of frontline workers, professionals and citizens. Within universities the usual form is a grant, often with few conditions to allow a group of researchers to explore an idea without specifying outcomes. For external organisations, funding typically combines finance and some modest in-kind support (e.g. access to the skills of service designers). The staged funding provided by

in the UK is a good example.
