NOVAYA has been selected to be part of the first Urban Links Africa accelerator cohort

NOVAYA has been selected from 40+ UK SMEs to be part of the first Urban Links Africa accelerator cohort funded by Innovate UK, the UK government’s innovation agency, and run by Connected Places Catapult, the UK’s national centre of excellence for urban innovation.

NOVAYA and our South African partner Wits Enterprise // SaRCHI in Spatial Analysis and City Planning join 6 other partnerships that Urban Links Africa will support to deploy their digital solutions to address urban challenges in some of Africa’s most rapidly emerging cities. 


Over the next 5 months we will be refining our digital planning tool NOVAYA IAT to address the challenge of sustainable mobility in Johannesburg. You can learn more about our winning solution here. 


Being part of Urban Links Africa doesn’t just mean funding to expand NOVAYA IAT to new cities. We will also have access to a unique support network, including workshops with key UK Government departments, 1-2-1 support from a South African urban expert, and the guidance of a Business Advisory Board of representatives from large businesses and the investment community.
