Geovation Scotland aims to bring economic benefit, promote open innovation, and provide start-ups with supported access to data whilst harnessing the opportunities of working alongside tech and geospatial communities. The Geovation Scotland Accelerator Programme launched with the first cohort of startups in October 2019, based at a dedicated innovation space at Meadowbank House, Registers of Scotland’s HQ in Edinburgh.
The Geovation Scotland Programme is a funded accelerator. It offers the opportunity for location and property technology start-ups to develop their businesses for up to 12 months, with up to £15,000 grant funding.
As well as ensuring the successful delivery of Geovation Scotland, Lyndsey will build on her background in communications and engagement to develop a strong network of supporters and partners and identify and pursue opportunities for collaboration nationwide.
