Tech Corridor firms in the space and satellite sector are being offered the chance to join a new mission to Silicon Valley where they will have the chance to mix with the big players in the sector.
The trip is being organised as part of government innovation agency Innovate UK’s Global Business Innovation Programme, delivered by Enterprise Europe Network, and is being supported by St John’s Innovation Centre in Cambridge.
Blasting off next year, the programme will enable successful applicants to meet with investors in the sector and provide insight into the requirements of successfully doing business in the US market.
Delegates will have the opportunity to pitch to venture capital companies and attend the SmallSat Symposium 2019 to meet with potential partners, investors and customers.
The visit includes a trip to Los Angeles, a central hub for businesses active in space, satellite, infrastructure and innovation, to network and pitch with potential partners and investors.
Funding is available through the Global Business Innovation Programme for flights, five-night accommodation (one representative per company) and subsistence.
If you want your company to boldly go where it has never gone before (sorry), click here to apply. The closing date for entries is 9am on Friday, November 16.
