Our  mission

We are a purpose-led business on a mission to change the world.

See our 5-year Impact Report

We believe the power of lateral innovation thinking, the confidence and creativity it unlocks can drive change, transformation and progress within industry, and outside it.

As insurance innovation practitioners, working around the world and across all classes, we share our unique perspectives and understand yours too.

The Academy is for everyone, not just innovation teams. We believe that everyone has the ability to become more innovative if they are given the opportunity.

We are driven by a desire to change the world; both through best-in-class innovation training, and by channelling 90% of our distributable profits to alleviating poverty by partnering with local NGO’s, Charities and Organisations.

The core values we hold as a team

The values which we hold as a team at Ninety are also the  principles which sit behind the Academy.

Others first

We believe the power of lateral innovation thinking, the confidence and creativity it unlocks can drive change, transformation and progress within industry, and outside it.

Do the right thing

As a social enterprise, we reinvest our profits from delivering training into education projects for those that need it most. Your learning helps others learn too, so everyone benefits.

Smile and laugh often

We believe that you don’t have to be serious to solve serious problems. We encourage all our participants to be their weekend selves by cultivating a fun, relaxed and judgement-free environment.

People matter

We connect our alumni to others in the community, creating an ever-growing network of those who are passionate about innovation and social change.

Try, learn, grow

Training only works if you know how to apply it, which is why all our training is based on practice, not just theory. You’ll be able to make the learnings work practically for you and your organisation.
