London First is London’s champion
We are an influential business membership organisation with the mission to make London the best city in the world to do business.
London First is a not-for-profit organisation, entirely funded by its members. Our agenda is developed independent of party political motives or affiliations.
We represent the capital’s leading employers in key sectors such as financial and business services, property, transport, ICT, creative industries, hospitality and retail. Our membership also includes higher education institutions and further education colleges.
London First’s mission is to make London the best city in the world to do business. We aim to influence national and local government policies and investment decisions to support London’s global competitiveness. A successful London is vital to the health of the UK Economy.
Our influence is built upon the breadth, depth and calibre of our business membership. Our credibility comes from our informed, in-depth policy development, supported by proactive and creative campaigning, as well as from our record of achievement. We innovate, developing practical and timely solutions to London’s strategic challenges. We also provide our members with an effective conduit for communication with government and a voice in the public arena.
