A pioneering programme to help firms find their place in space has given a total of 31 businesses a £900,000 boost and created new jobs – and the search is now on to find the next group of entrepreneurs.
Twenty businesses will be supported on the next phase of the Leo Programme, a free six-month accelerator run by the UK Space Agency and powered by Entrepreneurial Spark, where they will get access to tailored, specialist online and in-person support from the space industry and business growth experts.
The programme is open to businesses already in the space sector and those already exploring the possibilities presented by the industry.
Firms working in a linked industry looking for a route into the space sector can also apply.
Applications for the Leo Programme are now open . The closing date is 10 September.
