Do I have to dress as an inventor? - GeoVation Challenge: Inventorium

Matt (Fribrax) and I are taking part in the GeoVation Challenge: Inventorium Idea & Team Generation Day on 1st March in Bangor.

Entrepreneurs, developers, community groups, innovators – enter the ‘How can we transform neighbourhoods in Britain together?' GeoVation Challenge for a chance to win a slice of  innovation funding to help develop their ideas. There is £115, 000 worth of prizes for good ideas on  ’How can we transform neighbourhoods in Britain together?’ and even more prizes for ideas that can support visitors and communities on the new ’Wales Coast Path’.  These prizes are part of Ordnance Survey’s GeoVation Challenges.

On St.Davids Day, Inventorium invite innovators to an informal workshop aimed at forming teams with ideas which can crack the GeoVation Challenges. GeoVation Challenges will be solved by teams with diverse knowledge of technology, business and the needs of society. Ordnance Survey will fund the ideas making best use of Ordnance Survey data, including OS OpenData and OS OpenSpace.

I'm sure that when we get there we will find lots of little sheds for us to invent in. Can't wait, I'm sure we'll meet loads of interesting people and hopefully this might generate some network opportunities for Mako Creative as well. If anybody else has been before please let us know what it's like.

We'll let you know how we got on.
