Savvy Navvy is the equivalent of Google Maps for sailors and provides point-to-point navigation solution, making sailing easier, safer and more enjoyable.

Since the launch of its 'Founding Member Program' in 2018, the company received a wave of feedback from its community of 11,000 members who were searching for a navigation solution like Savvy Navvy.

ImproveWell is a staff engagement tool focused on quality improvement. Its mission is to empower a workforce of 1.7 million employed in the National Health Service (NHS) in order to improve the way care is delivered. ImproveWell is used by Nightingale London and Dragon's Heart COVID-19 surge hospitals. The tool utilises three feedback systems where everyone can suggest ideas for improvement, share how their day at work is going, and complete pulse surveys.

The innovation management software market is expected to reach $1.97 billion by 2025. ImproveWell aims to be a major contender in this category. By September 2020, the company aims to work with more than 20 NHS organisations to get its product to the market-ready stage.
