Active lifestyles – 10 finalists invited to camp


 Click to see the Active Lifestyles GeoVation ChallengeOur GeoVation judging panel were delighted at the quality and scope of the 74 ideas submitted to our GeoVation Challenge to find ways to encourage active lifestyles in Britain using  Ordnance Survey products or services in the solution.

The judging panel have now selected a short-list of 10 finalists who have been invited to develop their ideas further at GeoVation Camp,  held over the weekend of 28 February to 2 March at Ordnance Survey in Southampton.

The finalists who have been invited to GeoVation Camp are:

We have limited the number of ideas that are invited to camp so that there will be more time to work with teams and help them to develop their ideas into prototyped ventures and work on their pitches for funding. Because places at camp are limited we are operating a reserve list and have notified the teams that are on this list.

At the end of the fun and intense weekend, the teams will pitch their idea to the judging panel and assembled audience and successful finalists will be selected to receive a slice of £100,000 innovation funding to develop and launch their ideas.  Participants at camp will also be able to vote for their favourite idea to receive the £1,000 Community Award prize.

If you feel you can help teams develop their ideas at the Active Lifestyles GeoVation Camp then please register for helper tickets here and let us know what skills you can offer.
