TechInvest Black Founders in Tech
25th November, 2020 – Virtual Showcase

The last Mayor of London’s TechInvest event centred London’s leading Black Founders in Tech, those that are propelling innovation in the Capital. 


After an incredibly competitive application process, our judging panel selected 10 trailblazing innovators that are using tech to drive ground-breaking change in the Capital to improve the way we live, work and interact with one another. From Fintech, Medtech, Smart Cities and Sustainable Tech, to Creative Tech, GovTech and Cyber Security, TechInvest Black Founders in Tech presented London’s most impressive Black founded teams that are disrupting the market and paving the way for the future of their respective sectors.
