GeoTech continues to grow
Four businesses join the Geovation Programme
Meet the four GeoTech start-ups with new technologies and new thinking that have been specially selected as the newest additions to Ordnance Survey’s corporate accelerator, the Geovation Programme.
The latest intakes to the Programme are:
Passive Eye – Producers of self-powered, GPS asset trackers. These units, which never need their batteries recharging or replacing, are used to track objects on the move and as an alarm for objects that shouldn’t be moved. www.passive-eye.com
Lie of the Land – Winner of the Geovation Underground Assets Challenge with an ambition to increase the visibility of underground assets amongst key stakeholders, increase operational efficiencies and reduce expensive damage to third party assets.
City Seer – A new data and interface agnostic API for real-time urban metrics. City Seer enables more informed and faster decision-making for urban planners, architects and developers as they design our future cities.
Localistico – Digital Marketing platform that connects customers to businesses by providing business owners and chains the ability to edit their Internet profiles quick and easy. Current clients include El Corte Inglés, Foxtons, O2 and Starbucks. http://localistico.com/
The new ventures joined the Geovation Programme in March 2017. To find out more about the Programme, visit: https://geovation.uk/programme
Geovation is based at a dedicated location-data lab in London that supports and enables open innovation and collaboration. Everything happens somewhere, and the Geovation mission is to expand the use of location in the UK’s innovation community.
