Join us for a Behavioral Insights Student Group Lunch with Charlotte Bearn (Behavioural Insights Team).

Charlotte is the Head of Ventures at the UK Behavioural Insights Team, the world’s first government institution dedicated to the application of behavioural sciences, that formed as a social purpose company in 2014.

BI Ventures is an incubator for digital startups. It uses digital products to take successful interventions and methodologies from the Behavioural Insights Team to scale, and aims to solve challenges in areas including education, health and organisational decision-making.

Charlotte will be talking about how the team uses applied behavioural science as a starting point for digital innovation by introducing some of the current products the team is working on and the research that underpins them. These include digital tools to help governments and organisations run their own RCTs and a digital and SMS platform that helps boost young people's attendance and attainment at college.

Charlotte has previously worked in commercial and product development roles at tech startup onefinestay, food startup Charlie Bigham’s and Colgate-Palmolive. Charlotte holds an MA (Cantab) and an MPhil, both from the University of Cambridge.
