This week Ed speaks with Christian Rouffaert, founder and CEO of Teragence, and speaker at Geomob London in September 2016. Christian's story is an interesting one not just because of the innovative work Teragence does, but becaue he came to entrepreneurship later than most, making the leap to starting a business in mid-career. We cover what exactly Teragence does, and why they don't present themselves as a "GIS company" despite behing heavy users of geotechnology. The conversation then turns to things that might be relevant to other geo start-ups: how Teragence uses one dataset to serve many different types of customers, and how they thrived despite initially trying to sell to large telcos. Enjoy.
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
