We’re on the hunt for 20 of the most innovative startups who are working to address the most pressing global and local challenges – and we’re calling them The Future 20.
We recognise that they need the right kind of support, so we’ve created a bespoke package for the most exciting startups across the UK to help them create maximum impact and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Mentorship from select entrepreneurs and angel investors
Introductions to funders and opportunities to raise capital
Advice on product development, go-to-market roadmaps and access to testing sites
Business development support from professional service partners
Specialist vertical partners for industry insight, introductions and profile
Free workspace in a supportive and inspiring environment
We want to work 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.
We’re looking for the 20 ventures who 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, your idea should have the potential to change lives.
