The Civic Innovation Challenge is an initiative that matches start-ups and innovators with leading companies and public organisations to solve some of London’s biggest challenges. This year the Mayor of London, Transport for London and the Metropolitan Police Service are looking for innovative solutions to democratising planning, tackling congestion in the capital and countering violent extremism online.

The competition is open to entrepreneurs who are developing tech solutions to these challenges or are developing products that could be applied to the challenges. Start-ups will benefit from a comprehensive series of training sessions, access to cutting-edge data, networks, expertise and pilot sites, and the chance to win £40k to test their solution directly with our challenge partners.

Applications are open now until December 12th, 2019.
