Still not sure if you’re eligible to apply to the GeoTech track?

If you’re a start-up using geospatial data but do not fit into any of these categories, we’d still love to receive your application as we are not merely choosing start-ups from these sectors.

Applications are open to early-stage pre-seed startups, UK registered or eligible to be. You could be a solo-founder startup with either a small or larger, more established team. Our previous Programme participants include developers, students/graduates, entrepreneurs, innovators, and beyond.
