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.Join The Waitlist For The Next Challenge
The programme’s goal is to harness the power of climate solutions to address the real, everyday challenges faced by London communities.
By focusing on the intersection between local challenges and market-driven innovation, we’re looking to accelerate the adoption of truly sustainable solutions — faster and with greater impact.
Future Industries Demonstrator is part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and is supported and delivered by a range of partners across local government, academia and enterprise.
Together, we’re fostering innovation and creating positive impact in London – and across the world.
