Supporting & scaling solutions to the climate crisis

The Future Industries Demonstrator Programme has been created to support London-based startups and SMEs that are working on solutions to the climate crisis.

Throughout 2023 and 2024, SHIFT and partners will be issuing three Innovation Challenges to London’s innovation economy, supporting 215 organisations along the way.

Successful Innovation Challenge applicants will receive funding, support and expertise, as well as access to workspace and collaborative networks.
