GrowUp co-founder Kate Hofman selected as London Leader 2015 by LSDC

We are proud to announce that GrowUp Urban Farms co-founder Kate Hofman has been named as a ‘London Leader’ by the London Sustainable Development Commission (LSDC).

During the year of her appointment, Kate and GrowUp Urban Farms will be supported through training, masterclasses, pairing with an experienced mentor and an increased opportunity to network with other leaders in sustainable business.

With the help of the Mayor of London, the LSDC annually selects and supports individuals who have shown commitment to tackling the numerous sustainability challenges facing London. The programme contributes to a bank of expertise in sustainability leadership that aims to make London one of the most sustainable cities globally. The newly appointed Chair of the LSDC said he hoped this year’s Leaders would inspire Londoners to see the real commercial potential of responsible, mission-driven businesses.

After an inspiring launch party at City Hall on the 27th of November, this year’s cohort of London Leaders are all looking forward to scaling their impact through collaboration with each other and the LSDC as well as strengthening ties with the Greater London Authority (GLA).
