Transforming public services delivery

London Ventures is an innovation programme focused on driving sustainable and transformative change across London by introducing innovative private and third sector solutions to the public sector. London Ventures is governed by the Capital Ambition Board, delivered by London Councils, and powered by EY.

Our collaborative approach to public service delivery encourages local authorities to work with partners of the programme to drive better commercial deals with suppliers, and inspires cross-sector partnerships which drive positive outcomes for local authorities and their residents.

Our vision is to actively pioneer innovation to drive sustainable change and transformation across the public sector, by providing:

“Opportunities for local authorities to access innovation and transformation that will improve their effectiveness and efficiency while ultimately supporting radical improvements in outcomes for London’s citizens, communities and businesses.”

London Ventures delivers this vision through our two workstreams: Targeted Ventures (issue-led) and General ventures (solution-led); facilitating collaboration between local authorities, innovative companies, charities, and investors.

Targeted Ventures focuses on a specific strategic challenge facing local government by identifying and incubating innovative solutions. General Ventures is a solution-led approach which involves developing a selection of market-ready propositions to improve public service delivery, in partnership with a portfolio of Venture Partners.
