Our focus on social innovation and tech for good

We’re working with start-ups that use technology with purpose or create business models which deliver impact and financial sustainability. We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as our framework, a blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. The 17 global goals address the challenges we face from inequality and poverty to environmental degradation and clean water.

The Future 20 can inspire and excite with their solutions for creating change on a local and global basis. From developing low cost technology for water filtration that could impact the lives of millions in the developing world to using contactless technology to improve the lives of homeless people in the UK, their ideas have the potential to change lives.
