Better Futures is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and works with partners to give 100 small cleantech businesses the boost they need to be successful in London and create a hub for low-carbon industries in the city.
Cleantech Innovate 2019 aims to connect the most promising environmental technologies that will accelerate results for a more sustainable future with impact investors looking for both a good return and a measurable and beneficial environmental impact. A range of shortlisted entrepreneurs will pitch their technologies to a room full of investors in a series of themed sessions covering energy, food, transport, water, waste, and shelter.

“Cleantech Innovate shares Better Futures’ goal of supporting the most ground-breaking and exciting cleantech innovators who can take the lead in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and tackling climate change.
“We’re delighted to have Better Futures as a partner for the event and we look forward to seeing how some of the most innovative, game-changing technologies can support London and the rest of the UK in moving to a greener, more circular economy.”
