Mayor of London’s


Backing the capital’s innovators


Supported by
Mayor of London

The first of the Mayor Of London’s TechInvestment Programme for 2018 will take place on January 18 2018, focusing on Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence is a huge growth area for entrepreneurship and innovation for London, enabling businesses and organisations to process information and perform tasks more efficiently and effectively. Whilst we don’t yet know the full impact of AI, it is likely to have profound implications for the lives of so many people working and living in the Capital in the years ahead. The Mayor of London seeks to put London on the global map by finding the top investors in our community to support to strongest London-based innovators.


Start-up, early stage or scaling up businesses that demonstrate strong capacity for disruption and value creation through the use of AI, are invited to compete for a coveted pitch spot.
