Start-up award for Now & Then

Mike Robinson

Cornwall-based start-up Now & Then has been named as the Tourism and Leisure Start-up of the Year at the south west final of the StartUp Awards National Series.

Now & Then, which was created out of Falmouth University’s venture studio, Launchpad, provides tools for attractions, museums, and places of interest to easily create guided tours tailored to each user, using pre-existing or new content.

Founder Mike Robinson said: “Winning this award is a huge honour. A substantial amount of hard work and preparation has gone in to creating Now & Then, we have overcome many hurdles and are now finally in a position to launch the new app.

“We are in talks with large tourism attractions, councils, and influencers with regards to creating exciting new tours which will enable people to connect to history and society. The future is bright for Now & Then – this is only the beginning.”
