Futr. Founders Invited to 10 Downing Street

The government tech venture fund Public has launched its new accelerator programme at 10 Downing Street.

Chancellor the Exchequer Phillip Hammond and Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Matt Hancock, and the Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark, have all backed Public’s new programme.

Hammond said: “New technologies can help out public services to innovate effectively, and support the staff working in these areas – by improving communication in hospitals, creating smarter roads, better healthcare, and finding new ways to connect isolated elderly people.”

“It’s great to see the GovStart programme become one of the world’s leading accelerators, helping to position the UK as the global hub of the govtech industry,” added Clark.
