Are you interested in how we can make our communities and cities more future-proof? Would you like to develop an idea using smart technologies with the potential to build this into a sustainable business?
Our next Geovation Challenge is looking for innovative solutions that will help make our communities greener, smarter and sustainable. Entrants will be in with a chance of winning an all-expenses paid place at our 3-day Geovation Camp and Conference in London in February 2018.
To help you understand the problems and give you a head start in entering the competition, we’re holding workshops around Britain – workshops that could change your life and help save the planet!
‘The Geovation Challenge process is fantastic. It has helped me to shape and elevate ideas into forming a commercially-viable company that is exporting services internationally and working with well-known brands and institutions. The process has also directly inspired, incubated and catalysed our innovative work to make London the world’s first National Park City.’ Dan Raven-Ellison, Founder of London’s National Park City Foundation
The workshops provide valuable insight into the essentials of starting and developing your business and developing location-based ideas. We’ll delve into the problems of improving health and wellbeing, supporting local economies, enabling sustainable living, and enhancing the natural environment. You’ll find out what we mean by ‘innovation’ and apply the Geovation formula, “Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution”. We explore each of these aspects, giving you a toolkit of resources to help you focus and elevate any idea proposition to build a sustainable, scalable business. Hear from innovation experts and find out what makes current Geovation ventures successful.
Winners of the Geovation Challenge will be invited to an all-expenses paid place at our 3-day Geovation Camp and Conference in London in February 2018. This camp will equip you with the tools to build a sustainable business and create a pitch to maximise your chance of success. There will be the opportunity to pitch for funding or a place on the Geovation Programme, the perfect funded accelerator to get your GeoTech business off the ground.
The Challenge will open on 4 October 2017 and is open to UK-based organisations or residents, aged 18 or over.
