SpaceTech Application Form

 

SpaceTech offers the South West region’s start-ups and innovative businesses the opportunity to build a robust business plan that will enable greater funding opportunities and growth. They will also have opportunities to find continued support from a number of partners in the South West Space Cluster and pitch to potential investors and industry leaders.

We encourage applications from creative intrapreneurs within businesses who are looking to develop an idea within their organisation and passionate start-ups with early stage ideas. We are seeking individuals with ideas across the whole space industry including data from satellite technology, communications, tracking, earth observation, as well as opportunities in new space supply chains from hardware to engineering.

This application is an opportunity for you to win a place on our 2-day entrepreneurship programme, where you will gain an insight into the space sector, polish essential business skills and business values. The final session will focus on the delivery of a pitch to a panel in preparation for a follow-up event to meet local investors and business support from the region. These sessions will help high growth potential businesses understand and prepare for investor readiness and affirm why your business pitch matters. Successful finalists will also gain the opportunity to take up funded grow-on space in the region.

Applications are now open, please complete this application form and forward any queries to spacetech@exeter.ac.uk.
