Ordnance Survey and Land Registry unveil new £10,000 grants for proptech firms

Geotech and proptech firms are being invited to apply to become part of the latest Ordnance Survey (OS) and Land Registry accelerator programme to develop their products.

It is open to start-ups that offer products or solutions covering location data or the land and property sector, and those approved will be based at the OS and Land Registry Geovation hub in London.

Participants will receive a £10,000 grant for six months, with another £10,000 available afterwards, along with 12 month’s free desk space at the hub.

Programme members are given access to technical expertise, Ordnance Survey and Land Registry data, and open data sources.

They also receive one-to-one sessions and workshops covering finance, fundraising, business planning, legal and intellectual property, company law, and coaching on presentations and pitching.

Previous programme users include landlord licensing and compliance tracker GetRentr, home buyer passport developer Hipla and pay-as-you-fly commercial drone insurers Flock.

Alex Wrottesley, head of Geovation, said: “We want to hear from any new start-ups, entrepreneurs and developers looking to solve customer problems with location data, or creating new digital solutions in the land and property sector.

“Geovation offers a unique combination of funding, expertise, relationships and resources, and the teams on our Programme find themselves at the heart of our vibrant Geotech and Proptech community.

“As well as financial assistance, mentoring and workshops, we are unique in providing access to a dedicated software development team in-house, who work closely with our cohort companies to run lean experiments and build and release their first products.

“All of this combines to help these emerging start-ups break through.”
