GeoVation Awards Shortlist published

The judges have met (well virtually) – plans have been reviewed, combed, questioned and debated and finally we have a shortlist of ventures for the GeoVation Awards Showcase on 26th January.

You can find the 8 shortlisted ventures here

The short-listed candidates will be invited to present their plans at the GeoVation Awards Showcase, to be held at the Royal Geographical Society on 26 January. Doors open at 11:30 with a sandwich box lunch before the main event which kicks-off at 13:00. £10,000 is up for grabs for the outright winner, and £5,000 each for two runners-up. A Community Award of £1,000 will also be made, as voted for members of the audience on the day.

The GeoVation judging panel includes Steve Coast the founder of crowd-source mapping project, OpenStreetMap; James Alexander, CEO of Green Thing, the online service that encourages people to lead greener lives; James Cutler, CEO of eMapSite and Gary Gale, Director of Geo-Engineering at Yahoo.

It should be an interesting and enjoyable afternoon, so why not come along you might meet a collaborator, an investor, an employer or just a plain old friend.

Registration for the GeoVation Awards Showcase is free (but don’t leave it too late as the numbers are limited) and you can also help the good folk at MapAction. GeoVation will be donating £10 to Map Action for each registered delegate who attends the showcase.

See you there hopefully
