Use of Remaining Funds

Set up using Capital Ambition funds, the London Ventures programme brings innovative private and third sector ideas to the public sector. London Ventures is a joint partnership between EY and London Councils.The products, services and solutions in our Venture portfolio all aim to deliver significant benefits for London residents. They use cutting-edge technology to reduce costs and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of public services. 

Our team assesses the Ventures to ensure that they're suitable for public sector implementation. We then identify opportunities for local authorities to use these solutions to achieve savings, increase investment and deliver better outcomes for Londoners.
