As part of the Mayor’s Smart London vision, talented entrepreneurs are invited to showcase their digital innovations which respond to challenge areas, critical to the development of a smarter London.

As London grows to an estimated 10 million residents in 2030, new pressures are being placed on the city. In order to meet these challenges and to keep its world-class status, London must make the most of new technologies and use its creative strengths. In 2013, the Mayor of London launched the Smart London Plan to invite a closer look at the role digital technology can play in supporting London’s future growth.

"We need to harness London’s technical prowess to help the capital work even better as a city, support its growth and help our infrastructure and services to be more responsive to Londoners and business needs. We need London’s top of the class researchers and talented entrepreneurs to innovate with new approaches to the capital’s growth challenges."
