Geovation is an initiative of Ordnance Survey (OS), to deliver its commitment to open innovation in the geospatial industry. The aim of this commitment is to gain insight to how geospatial data can further contribute to the UK digital economy and inform our own digital transformation. We achieve this by promoting, supporting and investing in start-ups like yours.
HM Land Registry (HMLR) joined OS as partners in innovation to support businesses revolutionising the property industry using data and technology, through the PropTech track of the Geovation Programme.
Launched in Autumn 2019, Registers of Scotland and OS have partnered to bring the Geovation Accelerator Programme to Edinburgh. From our new location, we’ll be supporting both Geotech and Proptech startups to launch and grow.
Both the GeoTech and PropTech tracks of the Programme give you at least 6 months of focused support.
Connect with Geovation alumni, successful entrepreneurs and advisors and get expert support from industry leaders.
£10,000 equity-free grant funding over 6 months, with opportunity for a further £10,000 equity-free grant funding.
12 months dedicated desk space for your team, bookable meeting rooms – and lots of whiteboards.
Access to a range of open and proprietary datasets from Ordnance Survey, HM Land Registry and other partners.
Active promotion and marketing of your project and opportunities to host your own workshops and presentations in our event spaces.
Facilitated workshops and 1:1 sessions covering finance and fundraising, business planning, legal & IP, company law.
Presentation and pitch training, learning how to communicate to sell and 1:1 founder coaching give you the skills and mindset you need to succeed.
The Geovation Accelerator has built a reputation for being uniquely founder-friendly. We want you to focus on building your business, not tick boxes attending classes. We grant fund you, help you build your product up to MVP stage and provide 12 months dedicated space – as well as providing a wide range of other support services to help you succeed.
Every start-up’s accelerator journey is different. Some teams need product development support, others needs help with sales and marketing – some just need a great place to work, surrounded by like-minded people. You tell us how we can best support you.
So, if you want to create a product or business using location or property data apply to one of our Accelerators now. We have already helped launch and grow over 130 start-ups, solving real-world challenges in connectivity, mobility, infrastructure, land and property, the circular economy and much more.
Join us and get the support you need to take your idea from concept to a product that could improve our day to day life – and maybe even contribute to a better future for us all.
