Three East Midlands hot tech start-ups
The technology sector in the East Midlands is home to some innovative companies and products dealing with the growth in demand for app development, gaming, contactless transactions and collaboration in the events industry and more…
In this list, we have pulled together just three hot start-ups who are building solutions and are harnessing the skills and infrastructure within the East Midlands region.
Based at Think Tank, Lincoln’s innovation hub, Iventis are trailblazing in the event tech industry. They are creators of a leading collaboration platform developed by founder Joe Cusdin’s experience of working on the London 2012 Olympics.
Created for the global events industry, Iventis dynamic software platform harnesses the power of layering complex BIM, CAD, GIS and other data, bringing them together in one, easy to use, format. The platform enables organisers and stakeholders of large-scale operations to work more collaboratively and efficiently. The platform facilitates the planning and sharing of data to enable organisers to position everything from food concessions to details of transport and security.
Thanks to recently securing a £250,000 investment from the MEIF Proof of Concept & Early Stage Fund, the team is rapidly growing. They already have an enviable global client list of some of the major sporting and cultural events across the world including Dubai Expo 2020 and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
