We were honoured that the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan announced our project called Better Futures, one of our clean tech incubation programmes aiming to cultivate 100 small businesses giving them the extra boost in development they may need to be successful.
We at Sustainable Bridges are delighted to be lead delivery partners in this project alongside the GLA, Imperial College London, Imperial Consultants and OPDC (Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation). Better Futures was built off the back of an increasing need for proactivity in tackling environmental and social challenges, including air quality, climate change, housing and the future of the transport sector.
The Mayor’s Office: “The funding would help kick start the development of a clean-tech cluster for London, developing a hub for low-carbon industries in the capital”
The programme budget of £1.6m will go towards supporting the SMEs, which will come in many forms including, management and leadership support, marketing, access to co-working space and public and private funding support. The package also offers qualifying start-ups the opportunity of research collaboration with Imperial College London via its Centre Cleantech London.
Sadiq Khan “My ambition now is to harness the new technologies that are being pioneered right here to transform London into the world’s leading smart city.”
