Tech City Launchpad 1: progress update

Tech City Launchpad 1: progress update

In summer 2011 the Technology Strategy Board ran a Tech City Launchpad competition, to stimulate innovation in the vibrant cluster of small digital businesses around Shoreditch in London. The competition attracted over 200 applications from SMEs working in the digital space.

Gaining investment was a key focus of the process. After careful assessment we invited 40 of the best projects to a day-long investor pitching workshop, and decided also to fund 18 of these projects ourselves for up to £100,000 each – but this was conditional on securing private sector funding to match.

So, a year on, how have these 18 projects fared? The company name links below will bring you up to date on their progress and successes.
