Programme member blog! Tim talks tech for agriculture


Guest blog by Tim Hopkin, a current Geovation Programme member talks about ‘The Land App’ an agricultural land management app and more. 

We asked Tim…

What is your business/idea?

Mapping for land managers. Allowing land managers to get a more complete overview of the land they are managing, by getting all the information relevant to them together in one place and helping them work on that collaboratively with other stakeholders.


What have you found most valuable whilst being on the programme? 


What has been the biggest challenge you’ve encountered whilst building your business? And how did you overcome this?

Learning how most effectively to do development. This was overcome by spending time with Seb who shared how best to move a project forward step by step.

Understanding all of the things that you need to get working to get a business off the ground. This was overcome by spending time with Alex and through all the arranged mentorship through the programme.


Where do you see yourself in a year’s time? 

With a company up and running and being able to help people on the ground manage their land more effectively.
