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.

For our Food theme, 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. We recently moved into our first Vertical Farming site in Central London and are starting to generate revenue. We also have plans in place for three further sites and potential partners lined up.

Our Digital Theme focuses on reducing pressure on urban health services. In May 2017, we completed the Alpha build for a smart health app that integrates ideas from Health Economics, FinTech, and Blockchain. The App uses complex analytics and machine learning algorithms to build user health profiles and incentive health improvement through various means. Efforts are now focused on development of the full version.

Our final initiative, sitting under our Living theme, is a device to combat air pollution cities. This is a highly relevant topic right now and there is a gap in the market and real need for our product across multiple customer segments. We're currently undertaking product development and prototyping with a view to completing by August 2017 - our commitment date to the UK press.

We have a seven-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 who can join the team to help us to realise our goals.
