Managing Director, Ordnance Survey International


Steven Ramage started working in the location sector in the early 90s when GPS was an emerging technology and he was involved with hydrographic survey services firm Oceonics, which was acquired by Fugro. The remainder of his career has revolved around start-ups and acquisitions involved in geospatial innovation and entrepreneurship. This talk will provide examples from Steven’s professional life in the location sector from Navteq, bought by Nokia for $8billion to his most recent location venture with Ordnance Survey International through to a start-up called what3words, which is working on the language of location.
