Subject: Enter the £21,000 GeoVation Awards Program
Excuse the mass mailing.
You may already have heard from me about the GeoVation Awards program that we launched a couple of weeks ago. GeoVation has an awards pool of £21,000 to help some innovative ideas get started. The only requirement is that they use geography and create some social, economic or environmental benefit. You can find out more about the Awards Program and browse through the ideas already in discussion at https://challenge.geovation.org.uk/
There are two groups of people that we are trying to reach and connect - people who have an idea (maybe there is something that you wrote down on the back of an envelope or beer mat ages ago) and people who have the skills and energy to help the ideas become a reality (you could be a developer, a designer or a commercial person). Hopefully we can facilitate the connections that will help to turn ideas into ventures and then into award winners by January.
If you want to learn a bit more about the GeoVation Awards Program, meet a few of the ideas owners, get your creative juices flowing with some drinks and nibbles why not come along to the GeoVation Ideas Forum at the RSA in London on November 2nd. Registration is free at http://gvideas.eventbrite.com/
If you know anyone else within your work or social networks who you think my be interested in winning one of the GeoVation Awards please forward this invitation to them
Thanks and look forward to seeing your GeoVations
