Back in May, the Go London Finals took place at City Hall, where five brand new ideas battled it out to win the Go London Social Innovation Competition. Our cycle scholar competition winners were also presented with their bikes and equipment from our friends at Evans Cycles. So, what’s happening now?
The Go London Winners
Since the competition Danielle and Ingrid have been busy preparing their winning ideas, Go 10,000 and Pop Up Fitness, so they are ready to move forward and take full advantage of the Go London prize package. Yesterday they will took part in their first prize, consultancy from Deloitte and over the summer will be receiving support from NHS London, ThinkPublic, Precedent and M&C Saatchi. We’ll be reporting on progress from all the prizes over on the Go London blog as well as asking Danielle and Ingrid to share their experience of bringing their idea to life.
Here Danielle chats to us about what she took away from the consultancy session from Deloitte:
All our finalists impressed our judging panel to such an extent that all have been invited to continue to have conversations with those who may be able to help direct their ideas into something even better. We’ll be keeping in touch and blogging news from Splashpath, Amazing London and The GoGame.
Our Cycle Scholars
Each of our scholars entered as they wanted to get that little more active in their everyday lives. Jo, Dan and Nicola will be frequently dropping by the blog to let you know how their journeys into the world of cycling are going and how they are finding the City by bike.
You can also find all Go London news over on twitter- we hope you stay in touch!
