Our Mission

The KTN Built Environment Community delivers the Innovation Network function for practitioners in the urban living sectors.  It's a purpose build vehicle to bring the community sub sets together to share best practice, linking funders to finance seekers, inspire collaboration and showcase new opportunities for the UK's small businesses in this area.  A wider mission is also to bring these businesses closer to the research bases, bigger tier operators and collaborative opportunities outside this sector. 

KTN Connects people

To speed up innovation, solve problems and find markets for new ideas.
Established to foster better collaboration between science, creativity and business, KTN has specialist teams covering all sectors of the economy – from defence and aerospace to the creative industries, the built environment to biotechnology and robotics. KTN has helped thousands of businesses secure funding to drive innovation. And we support them through their business cycle to see that investment through to success.
