Geovation wins Incubator or Accelerator Programme of the Year at prestigious business awards
Geovation, Ordnance Survey’s (OS) geospatial innovation hub in association with HM Land Registry (HMLR), won the Incubator or Accelerator Programme of the Year at the prestigious Go:Tech Awards .22.
The Go:Tech Awards, which took place at Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol, celebrate businesses and entrepreneurs who lead the way in technology and innovation across the UK. From CleanTech pioneers and tech start-ups to the advanced engineering giants, the awards showcase ground-breaking businesses of all sizes across the whole of the UK.
With a record number of entrants, Geovation’s popular Accelerator Programme beat off stiff competition to claim their award. The programme aims to propel start-ups to the next level, with the content tailored to suit each start-up and their individual founders.
The programme provides start-ups with a bespoke package of financial support, worth over £100k per start-up, and includes equity-free grant funding, a 12-month residency in the data hub (6 months of which includes intensive support from industry experts), workshops, coaching and access to cutting edge data from OS and HMLR.
Carly Morris, Head of Geovation, said: “We are delighted to have won the Incubator or Accelerator Programme Award at the fantastic Go:Tech Awards.
“We were up against some extremely tough competition, including PiLabs, Setsquared and Huckletree. This makes the award even more meaningful for us and is further proof that our programmes are market leading.
“We have supported over 130 location-data and PropTech start-ups through our Accelerator Programme and those start-ups have created 1,759 jobs and raised more than £115m. We are more determined than ever to support start-ups tackle challenges and find solutions to build a commercially, environmentally, and socially sustainable future for everyday citizens.
“So this is a great accolade to all of the hard work that goes into building and delivering Geovation and I’m incredibly proud of the Geovation team, today and every day!”
