Finalists invited to Wales Coast Path GeoVation Showcase


Well done to the 13 teams that took part in the GeoVation Camp last weekend in Cardiff. The sheer level of energy from the GeoVators over the weekend of prototyping and pitching was truly inspiring  and on Sunday the group finished with a rousing rendition of the Welsh National Anthem!

With a take on our Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution formula used over the weekend Terry Jackson, one of our GeoVation supporters said of the Camp: Great people + great process + great fun = great weekend!
