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, focusing on healthy eating and food sustainability. We recently contracted for our first site and have secured a premium location for our first Vertical Farm, 10 minutes from London Bridge. We expect to be generating revenue from mid-April.

Our Digital Theme sits in Digital Health and focuses on reducing pressure on urban health services. We are building two mobile applications in the areas of prevention (involving gamification and inventives) and follow-up (involving predictive analytics), respectively. At this stage, we are appointing two developers to support with these initiatives and expect to launch in summer 2017.

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 which our device intends to occupy. Our prototype is due for completion in the coming months, after which point it will go for safety testing.

We held a 'soft' launch on Monday 27th February and within days, were a main feature in major newspapers and media outlets across London and more widely. This included the Independent, Evening Standard, Tech.London, and Growth Business. Our CEO was also invited to speak on BBC London to an audience of over 600,000 people. The majority of the media focus has been on our Air Pollution initiative, closely followed by our Vertical Farming work - and there is a high level of expectation for us to deliver on these different initiatives throughout 2017.

Considering the uniqueness of our start-up, the level of media attention we've received, and the maturity of our different initiatives, it's important that we raise additional capital to support with fast growth, including the hiring of additional permanent staff to add to the team.
