Watch our video to prepare for GeoVation Camp

Viv Alexander

Since we announced the GeoVation finalists who have been invited to GeoVation Camp, many of you  have been are asking for more information on camp and what you can do to prepare.

GeoVation Camp runs from Friday evening until Sunday evening and it is where the hard work and fun really begins.  It is important that you bring a team with you as there will be lots to work through. The camp is based around framework that Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution and we’ve made a great video which explains more about this. It shows you what will happen at camp and you can hear about other people’s experience.

During the weekend you  will have the opportunity to think about questions such as what problem are you trying to solve? What would happen if you did nothing? What is the value of your solution?  How do you demonstrate success?

The weekend is a fun and collaborative process and their will be service designers, GeoVation team members and other people there to help you answer these questions and build your pitches for funding.

Find our more by watching the video. Information about camp starts about 2 minutes in.

At the end of the weekend you will pitch to the Judging Panel for a share of £100,000 in innovation funding and we will do everything we can to help you and your team be prepared.

Feedback from past GeoVation Camp:

Brilliant, competitive environment, team building exercise, A 2 day think tank.

Go with an idea, listen to people with experience, have an open mind and be prepared to adjust both your approach to pitching and the parameters of your idea.

Enjoy!!! a thoroughly amazing experience which I would not have got anywhere else.
