High Level Pitch

MedCity is a small, powerful organisation, created to drive a step-change in the economic growth delivered from life sciences in London and the south-east of England.  Launched in April, 2014, by Mayor of London Boris Johnson and the three London Academic Health Science Centres (Imperial AHSC, King’s Health Partners and UCPartners) MedCity has four main strands of activity:

  • Promotion of the region as a coherent and interconnected region for life sciences research, development and commercialisation;
  • Branded front door into the region for businesses, investors and research collaborators, backed by advice and a connecting, “concierge service” that helps customers to navigate their way through the life sciences ecosystem;
  • Market understanding, especially to support the academic sector to develop market facing propositions; and
  • Growing and developing the entrepreneurial culture and ecosystem, including access to finance, facilities and business support.

MedCity has been established to grow the life sciences activity across London and the region, including contributing to increases in the numbers of:

  •  University spin-outs, patents and industrial collaborations;
  • Clinical trial activity;
  • Inward investments, both companies and jobs;
  • Companies operating and being retained in London and the region
