Applications for LEAP’s Resilience Fund Close on 1 April 2021
19 March 2021
The Resilience Fund is the LEAP’s £1 million challenge fund to incentivise innovators to address socially impactful issues facing London, help us emerge stronger from COVID-19 and ensure the capital is prepared for future disruptive challenges.
The Fund calls on innovators – tech SMEs, engineers, social enterprises and others – to develop solutions to some of London’s key challenges. Each challenge is sponsored by a Resilience Partner, including local authorities, public agencies, business improvement districts and charities, who will work with the innovator to test and implement their technologies and ideas.
Whether you are an early-stage or fully funded start-up, an engineer, a social enterprise, or a team with a great idea, we want to hear from you and how you would solve one of the challenges identified by the Resilience Partners and the Mayor of London – topics include health and wellbeing, food insecurity, air quality and more.
