Start-ups receive up to £20K in equity-free grant funding and the equivalent of over £100k in perks during the Programme including workshops, coaching and access to data from Ordnance Survey and HM Land Registry.

If your company, or idea, utilises geospatial data in any shape, way, or form, it falls under the GeoTech umbrella!
