27 October 2016

Cathrine Armour, Director, Venturyst Ltd

Cathrine’s passion for learning has supported her international career in government, NGO’s and commercial organisations, spanning over two decades. “Science and technology offers the opportunity to define your own path and explore interests as they emerge.” Since working with Ordnance Survey, Cathrine has undertaken the leadership, design and delivery of the Open Source Geovation strategy including developing the Geovation Accelerator Programme for innovators and entrepreneurs and also founded their London-based Geovation Hub for start-ups and SMEs. The approach of Geovation has become exemplar in stimulating the use of open data sources to provide truly open source solutions. Cathrine encourages other women to get involved in Open Source software projects. “The Open Source community is one that is by its nature collaborative and welcoming. Build something! When developing teams the proof is in the person, who they are, what they can do and how they play with others. Open Source projects are very much about contributing at team level. Know what you offer, give it openly and the opportunities will be open to you.”
