Professor Henrietta Moore, Founder and Director of the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity (IGP), and Arthur Kay, an award-winning entrepreneur who founded Bio-bean and Skyroom, started Fast Forward 2030 in 2015 to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs to tackle the pressing challenges outlined in the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Through collective action, we unleash the power of innovation, collaboration, and determination to create sustainable transformation. Our mission is to provide you with the latest insights, trends, and developments in the field of sustainability, all aimed at inspiring and empowering you to make a positive impact through your business.

It’s not just governments and large organisations that will drive the achievement of the SDGs by 2030. The critical contributions will come from the small, fast-moving, innovative organisations like those we develop at Fast Forward 2030.
