Winners explain what GeoVation funding has meant


The finalists for our latest GeoVation Challenge to get Britain active in the open are busy getting their teams together and preparing for GeoVation Camp. So we thought it would be interesting to look back at one of the previous winners of GeoVation funding and see what GeoVation has meant to them.

Sisters, Helen and Nicola Steer were winners  in our Wales Coast Path GeoVation Challenge in 2012 and launched their iPhone app, Real Food Wales last year.  The easy to use app, maps over 150 of the best food businesses in Pembrokeshire, helping users access sustainable and delicious food.

In the video below, Helen and Nicola, explain how the GeoVation process helped them.  From the openness of GeoVation Camp through to winning GeoVation funding,  and then forming their team Mapkin who have worked together to develop this app.
