GovStart is a six-month growth programme to help tech startups transform the public sector. We take startups at different stages and in various sectors, working with products that have powerful public sector applications, and provide them with the tailored support, strategy and networks they need to succeed.

Flynotes entered the programme as a single founder company, with an idea to streamline the problem of medical consent faced by doctors in clinical practices. GovStart helped Flynotes develop its Minimum Viable Product, raise £550K in seed capital and develop partnerships with a number of major UK medical and dental providers.
Mid Stage: Novoville
