Posted on: 25/10/2018

Meet investors and gain insight into the requirements of successfully doing business in the US market.

If you’re an innovative SME active in the space and satellite sector, established in the UK and looking to grow internationally, the Innovate UK Global Innovation Programme’s space visit to Silicon Valley is a must.

Delivered by Enterprise Europe Network, the visit from 3-8 February 2019 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.

For approved companies, Innovate UK will organise and fund flights, five nights’ accommodation and meals (one representative per company).

Silicon Valley is the home to many start-up, technology and data companies, presenting opportunities for UK businesses in the space and satellite sector to form collaborative partnerships and plan for future growth.  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.

If your company is selected to take part in the visit, you will be given a bespoke, intensive pitch training workshop to refine your proposition and prepare for generating investor interest and access to coaching sessions to ensure you are fully prepared for the visit.  You will also have access to post-visit support to exploit the opportunities from the programme.

To express your interest in participating, please click here to complete the application form.  It is a competitive process and places are limited.  Applications will be evaluated by a panel to select programme delegates.  The deadline for applications is 9am 16th November and you will be notified of the outcome by Monday 26th November 2018.
