Future of London engages with a select group of partners who share our priorities and support our work. As a not-for-profit, we rely on financial contributions to help run projects and keep events free of charge, but partnering with Future of London is about much more than funding: we share connections, expertise, content – and the convivial atmosphere that comes with doing what we love.
Partner with us
If you’re interested in supporting what we do and getting to know our network, contact Nicola Mathers.
Partnering with us typically involves a level of financial sponsorship combined with opportunities to speak at events, contribute research, host seminars or site visits, mentor our Leaders candidates and more. This mix provides the chance to be a trusted ‘thought leader’ in your sector and to make meaningful connections with existing and new audiences.
Partners join a core community of organisations contributing in a meaningful way to London’s future. Partners can engage on a personal level with key London influencers, including decision-makers from local, regional and central government, housing associations, leading private-sector firms, SMEs, and more. We have events and networking opportunities year-round for ongoing relationship-building.
