We’re delighted to be on the UK Space Agency accelerator programme called Leo!

The UK Space Agency is making space more accessible to more companies all over the UK with this acceleration programme for fast growth led by Entrepreneurial Spark and space industry experts from The University of Strathclyde.

The programme is run by Entrepreneurial Spark in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde and is aimed at building credible, backable and investable businesses within the Space sector.

We’ve been particularly focusing on how our OT and infrastructure experience might be applicable to ground-based infrastructure in the space sector such as launch facilities, satellite facilities, manufacturing and test centers.
