Six firms with exciting ideas for using location and property data have been chosen as the latest to benefit from the award-winning Geovation Accelerator Programme.
Geovation is an initiative for PropTech (property technology) and GeoTech (geospatial technology) start-up entrepreneurs to use location and property data in innovative ways, sponsored by HM Land Registry and Ordnance Survey. By coming up with solutions to existing problems or filling a gap in the market, these start-ups create products and services which benefit society and stimulate economic growth.
To date, 150 GeoTech and PropTech start-ups have been supported and more than 1,500 jobs created.
The PropTech start-ups are:
- Pantera Solutions – Transforming forecasting and strategy planning for commercial real estate.
- Blocktype – Helping developers and planners understand the development potential of land.
- EverKnock – A virtual concierge to manage your home move.
The GeoTech start-ups are:
- Wateraware Collective – Creating a living map of water quality data across the UK.

By offering our data, grant funding and mentoring to the new participants over the next 12 months, we’re fostering the next generation of data-led entrepreneurs, and we’re excited to see how they go on to transform the property industry and beyond.
The Geovation Accelerator Programme offers 12 months bespoke support to help early-stage founders grow their business. Start-ups receive up to £20,000 in grant funding and the equivalent of over £100,000 in support during the programme including workshops, coaching and access to data from Ordnance Survey and HM Land Registry.
