Geocento is pleased to announce that for the second year running they have been selected as one of ConnectTVT’s 2018 50 Game Changers in the Thames Valley. Now in its third year, the programme brings together the region’s most disruptive, fast growth digital and tech players.
The Company is playing a leading role in developing access to the rapidly growing constellations of imaging platforms that are encircling our planet from air and space, through the combination of innovative web technologies and broad supplier networks. Geocento’s primary focus is in exploiting this capability in support of enterprise asset management, enabling organisations to monitor or quickly assess their often remote physical assets, whether in the form of natural or managed assets such as forests, or human assets such as pipelines and commercial property.
As one of the 50 Game Changers, Geocento, joins a community of future-facing start-ups and scale-ups, invested in the region and looking to drive change through product and service innovation.
Launched in 2016 by ConnectTVT founder, Louize Clarke, the 50 Game Changers was designed to give a voice to, and connect, the Thames Valley’s digital ecosystem.
Previous Changers include Fairsail, acquired by Sage People, Oxford Nanopore, who recently closed a £100m investment round, and Datasift, acquired by Meltwater this year.
Louize explains, “50 Game Changers is so much more than a list of highest turnover companies – it’s about those championing change. To create a thriving digital landscape, we have to encourage a diverse mix of businesses across our innovation layers. We love to give a voice to those supporting community projects, the early stage start-ups right through to those heading towards their exits.”
This year’s cohort is the strongest to date and have, collectively, secured over £55m in funding in the last 12 months. The programme is supported by Henley Business School, EY, FSE and Fora.
