The programme aims to deliver measurable business improvements to 1,600 businesses across London through targeted support provided by the Capital's knowledgebase.

10,000 Maxi Voucher:(This sum needs to be matched by the beneficiary business) supporting more in-depth work, such as research and development of new products, services or markets, prototyping, or software development, testing and validation.
