How to win innovation funding for your idea


We recently has a great response to our GeoVation Challenge calling for ideas that help British business to improve their environmental performance  and following the GeoVation Camp 4 ideas have been selected to receive funding to develop and launch their ideas using Ordnance Survey products and services.

If you missed our latest GeoVation Challenge you may be interested to find out more about GeoVation which is Ordnance Survey’s innovation initiative that helps communities address specific problems where geography and technology form part of the solution.

As a result of feedback we’ve recently refined the GeoVation process,  removing the Showcase element and providing more time at camp to help participants to be ‘match fit to pitch’ to the judging panel for a chance to win innovation funding at the end of the weekend.

In our video below, we explain the GeoVation process and the steps to win innovation funding from GeoVation.
