Have an idea?
Make it a reality.


If your idea needs location information to make it work, you’ve come to the right place. Geovation is all about experimenting and developing your ideas.

Get creative and be among like-minded people. You could be a keen innovator with big plans, a developer with the know-how, an entrepreneur looking to make a difference, a data scientist with a passion to explore, or you might have a PhD under your belt.

Location is everywhere, and our mission is to expand its use in the UK’s innovation community. So we’re here to help you along your journey to success. Get on board and let’s start with your idea…
