Virgin Trains has been on the hunt for
innovative businesses ready to scale and help solve real challenges in the rail industry.
After receiving hundreds of applications, this was whittled it down to sixteen shortlisted businesses. The founders of these businesses were then invited to pitch to a panel made up of judges from Virgin Trains and the Department for Transport.
Virgin Trains were blown away by the quality of the entrants, the ideas and the ground-breaking solutions. However there can only be eight finalists – two in each category – and we’re thrilled to be one of them.
Warwick Analytics will take place in a five-week accelerator at London King’s Cross station, working together with Virgin StartUp and Virgin Trains to grow the businesses. At the end of this program? Another pitch day, but this time we will be pitching to roll out our businesses to thousands of Virgin Train customers and potentially gain access to Virgin Train’s £25m innovation fund.
Warwick Analytics have algorithms in their analytics for customer data that are focused on automating predictive analytics, and provide a predictive early warning system which helps CX professionals, and service managers alike, focus on key emerging hotspots of issues.
