The Mayor of London launched his Economic Development Strategy (EDS) on 29th November 2018. The EDS includes plans to help small businesses in London take advantage of the opportunities available in the capital’s Artificial Intelligence and tech sectors. The EDS was developed in partnership with the LEAP and will act as the strategic framework for LEAP’s activity.
