The Mayor of London’s TechInvest Programme is an event series supported by the Mayor of London, in partnership with UK Business Angels Association. The four-year London-based series will showcase the capital as a global hub for tech innovation by inviting London’s tech entrepreneurs to pitch their ground-breaking tech businesses to industry leading investors; increasing their potential to access investment to support their journey to high growth and global success.
Applications are open for the first event which will take place on 18 January 2018.
At each event, the top 10 entrepreneurs selected from a panel of industry experts, will be given the opportunity to present their innovative technologies to a group of over 100 leading investors, drawn from the Angel and VC community. The selected businesses will also get one to one support and guidance with pitching to and engaging with investors.
The first in the TechInvest event series will focus on Artificial Intelligence. AI is a huge growth area for entrepreneurship and innovation in London, enabling businesses and organisations to process information and perform tasks more efficiently and effectively. We are seeking London-based tech businesses, working on a wide range of innovative applications of AI, including healthcare, retail, transport, environment, manufacturing, financial services and legal and insurance services, or other relevant applications.
Businesses can be at start-up, early stage or scaling up and should demonstrate strong capacity for disruption and value creation through the use of AI, bringing benefits of efficiency, scale or speed to their sector and who are currently looking to access equity investment.
