What's more important: idea or execution? This week's guest is the head of Geovation: Carly Morris. Geovation was recently awarded the prestigious Go:Tech award for Incubator or Accelerator Programme of the year. Steven wonders if there really is a benefit for startups in the geospatial industry receiving help from accelerator programs such as the one Geovation provides. As Carly explains, the data speaks for itself, 76% of the startups that have worked with Geovation are still active five years after leaving the program. That's quite impressive considering 90% of startups overall fail within the first five years. Steven and Carly agree, simply having a brilliant idea does not guarantee success, it’s all about having the right solution and the right execution, that's where startup mentor programs such as the one Geovation offers come in. Join them for an enlightening discussion on how to take a geospatial start up to the next level.
