UP42, the geospatial developer platform and marketplace that is changing the way geospatial data is accessed and analysed, was featured for the third consecutive year in the Global Top 100 Geospatial Companies of 2023.
An annual initiative of the publication Geoawesomeness, currently in its fifth edition, the list includes the best geospatial companies in the world as determined by an expert committee of 16 members.
The nomination comes at a time of rapid expansion for the Berlin-based company, which has been driving 2-3x revenue growth per year and has grown to more than 100 employees across the world.
A paradigm shift for business of data
Founded by Airbus and officially launched on May 6, 2019, after six months of deep incubation under BCG Digital Ventures, UP42 emerged as a leading geospatial marketplace in the European ELISE study into sustainable data ecosystems and a new paradigm for Business Data within the World Economic Forum.
“Where contractual and technical barriers prevent customers from realizing the potential downstream of Earth observation, UP42 is opening doors to unprecedented opportunities,” said Sean Wiid, CEO of UP42.
“Being recognised as one of the world’s leading geospatial companies is a testament to our mission: get data into the right hands, as quickly and easily as possible, to solve real-world problems.”
