Launchpad incubator business Data Duopoly has been shortlisted as one of the top 50 entrants in the Europe-wide European Space Agency (ESA) Start-up competition. Data Duopoly is delighted to be listed and very proud to be one of only 5 business from the UK to get through to this stage.

Data Duopoly aim to change the way visitors experience some of the world’s most popular attractions. They solve the issue of congestion and frustrations experienced by visitors, by offering personalised incentives to discover and navigate venues differently, reducing queues and managing bottlenecks. Recently completing a pilot with the Eden Project in Cornwall, Data Duopoly successfully navigated many of the 1 million plus people who visited the attraction during the year.

Tanuvi Ethunandan, Co-Founder of Data Duopoly told us, “Data Duopoly has been on a whirlwind trajectory, since incorporation in late 2019. Being recognised on an international stage by the European Space Agency is an honour, and testament to the hard work, drive and passion that the team has. We hope our technology will benefit many venues, especially in light of the recent pandemic, with our new ‘Crowd Tracker’ and ‘Covid Alert’ features. We believe that providing tools to allow venues to make data driven decisions, will improve their visitors’ experiences and revenue-generation. A true win-win!”

ESA is looking for ways to provide support to start-ups in their valuable role in the space industrial ecosystem. The Top 50 will be condensed to 10 finalists by the end of June. The competition offers the winning entrepreneurs a mentoring prize and an invitation from ESA to attend an award ceremony at the Global Space Congress, scheduled to take place in Abu Dhabi in May 2021.
