Resilience First is a not-for-profit organisation, led and funded by business to strengthen collective business resilience.

Originated by London First, the initiative aims to make the difference between success and failure for any business community facing major challenges or severe disruption.

Through thought leadership and advocacy on better resilience, sharing of best practice, and partnerships,  Resilience First will embed resilience into corporate culture.

Drawing on the collective experience and capabilities of our network, it will create a template for resilience that is transferable to any urban area, in any country: a way of operating that is designed to bring about local change.  

To build and strengthen business resilience so that our urban communities become more agile and adaptable to overcome future challenges.
