Upstream is a partnership between Hammersmith & Fulham Council and Imperial College London, a result of an Industrial Strategy co-produced by the two organisations. We have been connecting, supporting and shining a light on the science, tech and creative sectors since 2018.

Team Upstream’s work is driven by the belief that local networks which facilitate collaboration and learning can accelerate the growth of organisations and places. Our vision is for Hammersmith & Fulham to have an inclusive, thriving ecosystem of ambitious science, tech and creative organisations, with the White City innovation district a global beacon of growth through innovation.
