There’s a tendency to pop ‘tech’ at the end of every possible categorisation of any tech business – proptech, edtech, healthtech and so on – but we don’t believe this is the best way to group these technologies. Indeed, usage often goes beyond one tag.

Six fast-growing UK and international startups, alongside transport industry experts, are participating in a new innovation programme to help keep London moving.
With over 31 million daily journeys on the Transport for London (TfL) network and London’s population expected to grow to 10 million by 2030, the capital’s transport system must keep pace with the increasing number of people who need it. To do this, TfL has been driving innovation through making its data open and accessible beyond TfL.
