Mayor’s Resilience Fund

Helping London bounce forward

In partnership with the Mayor of London.

The Resilience Fund is Mayor Sadiq Khan’s £1 million innovation programme to support London’s businesses and community groups to emerge stronger from the current coronavirus crisis, and to ensure the capital is better prepared for future disruptive challenges.

As the first step in delivering the fund, we are working with the Mayor of London to develop a series of open innovation competitions based around specific challenges in London.

We are currently selecting up to ten organisations to be Resilience Partners and will work with them to create an open innovation competition to solve their problem, by inviting innovators to design, test and scale creative, impactful solutions.
