Jet-heeled GeoSpock joins Vodafone backed tech venture
GeoSpock, the Cambridge UK company reinventing how extreme data is analysed, has joined Tomorrow Street – the award-winning Luxembourg-based innovation centre that partners with late-stage start-ups to scale their technology across the globe.
With offices in Cambridge, Tokyo, and Singapore, GeoSpock aims to make big data usable for all. Founded in 2013, GeoSpock designs, develops, and delivers GeoSpock DB – a unique, cloud-native analytics database designed for queries on extreme-scale datasets.
Joining Tomorrow Street enables GeoSpock to accelerate the adoption of its database technology, as well as open up new global channel opportunities.
“GeoSpock is an impressive platform, able to ingest and analyse vast quantities of data at unparalleled speed,” said Kenneth Graham, CEO of Tomorrow Street.
“GeoSpock’s innovative approach makes them ideally suited to Tomorrow Street and we are extremely excited to help in the next stage of its journey and welcome them to Luxembourg.”
Richard Baker, CEO of GeoSpock, feels the latest move is significant for the company across borders. He said: “We are delighted to be joining Tomorrow Street. With its global reach, ability to drive growth, and proven track record, it can help us to unlock the full potential of physical world analytics and help solve some of the great global challenges.
“By using our technology with Vodafone customers, we are able to act as the backbone of one of the largest innovation ecosystems on earth and help it become smarter and more connected.”
Tomorrow Street focuses on scaling late-stage startups through the power of Vodafone's global network. The award-winning innovation centre is a joint venture between Vodafone and Technoport (Luxembourg's technology incubator) and is recognised as a pioneering model enabling Vodafone to deliver innovation quickly and effectively for its customers and partners, whilst contributing to the expanding tech sector and startup ecosystem in Luxembourg.
GeoSpock founder and CTO Dr Steve Marsh said: “Vodafone is a market leader in Telco IoT, with over 100 million managed IoT connections globally, covering an extremely-wide variety of use-cases and producing immense amounts of sensor data.
“GeoSpock DB was uniquely designed and built to be the analytics database for the everything connected world and we look forward to working closely with Tomorrow Street to find strategic collaboration opportunities and help bring new analytics-driven applications and services to market within the Vodafone ecosystem.”
This latest success further builds momentum for GeoSpock in conjunction with its Asia telco backers NTT Docomo and KDDI.
