Geovation opens in Wales
Through the award-winning tech hub Tramshed Tech, start-ups in Wales can now receive specialist support from Geovation, Ordnance Survey’s successful initiative that propels innovative start-ups, using location and property data, to the next level.
The exciting new partnership will see Welsh start-ups, who become Geovation members, receive a host of benefits, including access to: Ordnance Survey’s and HM Land Registry data; expert business advice and mentorship; and tech surgeries given by Geovation’s in-house developer team.
Access to free London desk space, when they need it – and discounted London meeting room hire – will also be available.
One of the companies based at Tramshed Tech, to have already benefitted from Geovation’s help, is Urban Intelligence, who have built a new digital platform that allows companies and property developers to unlock the UK’s complex planning regulations via new digital access tools.
CEO of Urban Intelligence, Daniel Mohamed, recently said:
“We have seen first-hand how powerful these resources can prove for start-ups like ours – it’s great to see Geovation now providing this service in Wales at the Tramshed."
Geovation has more than 800 members who are using location and property data in their business, and Welsh start-ups will be encouraged to join its Accelerator Programme, which, since launching in 2015, has helped 125 start-ups across Great Britain introduce innovative digital products and services to their respective markets.
These start-ups have raised more than £86M in third-party funding and created 566 new jobs.
Head of Geovation, Carly Morris, recently said:
“We are delighted with this partnership with Tramshed and the opportunities we can create together to give start-ups the best route to success.
"2020 has been an extraordinary year, with even more challenges for start-ups, but from crisis comes opportunity.
"In an increasingly data-driven world, start-ups have the potential to play an important role moving forward, which is why we make it easy to access experience, expertise, and quality data.
"Without this support, it is much harder for start-ups to make an impact.
"Through this partnership with Tramshed, we want to unleash Welsh innovation in the GeoTech and PropTech world and help companies succeed.”
Tramshed Tech CEO Louise Harris recently said:
“This provision of world-leading tech expertise from Geovation aligns perfectly with our continuing growth plans at Tramshed Tech, where we are constantly looking to provide the Welsh tech and digital community with cutting-edge expertise to grow their businesses.
"So, we are delighted to be able to announce this new partnership today."
