National Workshops: Now on tour


We’ve teamed up with leading innovation agency, Nonon, and business and service design experts from London College of Communication and Natural Flow for a series of national Geovation Challenge Workshops. Kicking off the national tour at the Urban Innovation Centre in London last week, we’re traveling the UK looking for innovative solutions to how we can better manage our underground assets and to ensure that you walk away with the knowledge to build your idea from start to finish.

At our first workshop at the Geovation Hub in London last week, we worked with a group of fascinatingly diverse backgrounds – all keen to learn more about the Geovation Challenge. At the workshops we delve into what we mean by ‘innovation’ and apply the Geovation formula, “Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution”. At Geovation, we believe that successful innovation depends on building a viable solution to a real problem, and executed as a sustainable, scalable business.


Having teamed up with leading innovation agency, Nonon, and business and service design experts from London College of Communication and Natural Flow Consultancy, we explore each of these aspects, giving you a toolkit of preparatory resources to help you focus and elevate any idea proposition. The workshops give ample space for group discussion, questions, digging deeper into the problem areas of #whatliesbeneath, learning about current Geovation ventures, and even opportunity for team match-making.

Whether you take part in the Geovation Challenge or not, these workshops provide valuable insight into the essentials of starting your own business and developing location-based ideas; opportunity for networking; and how you can gain support from Geovation in other ways. Winners of the Geovation Challenge receive a place on the Geovation Programme, the perfect funded accelerator to get your GeoTech business off the ground.
