Entrepreneurship Programme takes off at Exeter Science Park

Entrepreneurship Programme takes off at Exeter Science Park

SETsquared Exeter recently hosted their Entrepreneurship Programme to six budding start-ups in collaboration with the UK Space Agency.

The two day programme held at Exeter Science Park Centre was specially tailored for innovative businesses and entrepreneurs using satellite-derived data and space-related technology.

Day one featured the development of a business model, problems, solutions, customer profiles and markets. Day two was all about making money, attracting investors and making the perfect first impression.

Participants were from a range of backgrounds, each interested in developing a new product or service using satellite and space-related data.

Speaking of the experience, Alex Longman currently working on his start-up, Solar Space said:

“I learnt a great deal about business and financial plans. I also had the opportunity to pitch and get feedback from mentors which is highly valuable. I very much look forward to exploring the opportunities available with SETsquared Exeter.”

A follow-up pitching and networking event will take place on Thursday 11 July. There will be a presentation from Robin Daniels CEO of SWBC and the opportunity for participants to deliver a refined pitch with feedback from an audience including mentors and investors.

The next Satellite, Data and Spacetech Programme will take place on 31 October – 1 November 2019. For more information visit the SETsquared website.
