Vertical Future is a London-based technology start-up focused on improving health in cities. We develop and implement technology-based initiatives to bring about health improvement. We have three main urban themes: Food, Digital, and Living.

The majority of our focus to date has been on building our food (agriculture) initiative, MiniCrops (www.minicrops.com). We're building a network of Vertical Farms across London using Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) technology. In addition to farming high quality produce for sale to customers across London, the initiative is positioned to educate customers on the importance of food sustainability and to provide jobs in areas of high social and economic deprivation across the capital.

Our first site is in Deptford and produces over 1 tonne of fresh, pesticide and herbicide-free every month. We sell this to high-end restaurants, households, retailers, and catering companies. We also distribute to customers via electric vehicle, meaning close to zero food miles. Compared to a traditional farm, most of our produce is farmed 90-97% faster, uses less water, and outputs up to 100 times more produce per square metre.

We have an 8-strong non-executive board which includes senior individuals from across health, finance, HR, legal, engineering, and IT. Each board member has a clear role, aligned with either the overall company or a specific initiative.

Since launch in February, we've had a significant amount of media attention across major national and international media sources. There is a high expectation for us to deliver in 2017 across all three initiatives.

We're looking to for the right investor or investors who can join the team to help us to realise our goals.
