The programme

In partnership with The Carbon Trust, we have launched London’s first circular economy accelerator programme, which will take startups with an MVP through a tailored 6-month programme of growth to commercialise their innovation.

The first cohort will address industry-led challenges within the built environment, delivering scalable solutions to help London’s transition to a low carbon, circular economy.

Join the innovation support network

Join our list of industry supporters and help our start-ups to scale their solutions by providing mentoring, technology validation and opportunities for them to test and pilot their innovations.

Get to know our businesses, they all bring innovative solutions to challenges in the built environment sector and will secure industry validation and testing throughout the programme. Some of our cohort have already successfully raised investment and will be looking towards their next round. Others are fundraising at the moment, and some will be looking to explore the investment options available to them, and deciding the right options for their business over the course of the programme. You can support them by: sharing your expertise, advising them and seeing if they are the right fit for you.
