London, Thursday 10 October 2019 Seraphim Capital today reveals the startups that are participating in Mission 4 of the Seraphim Space Camp programme, the UK’s first dedicated accelerator for global startups in the SpaceTech industry. Featuring seven new startups, the accelerator programme is again being run from the offices of global law firm Dentons at London’s St Pauls.

Launched by Seraphim Capital in 2018, Seraphim Space Camp is a nine-week programme, culminating in an Investor Day. The first three cohorts (comprising 23 companies in total) have collectively raised or had offers of £26 million in private investment and £10 million in grants, and have created 81 job opportunities, since completing the programme. Partners of the programme are: Dstl, Airbus, Dentons, Cyient, the European Space Agency, Rolls-Royce, Ksat, EutelSat, and SA Catapult.

The Mission 4 programme includes 19 full days in person, and corporate discovery days with Airbus, Cyient, European Space Agency, and Satellite Applications Catapult. It also includes a series of workshops and one-to-one mentoring sessions from SpaceTech professionals, advisors, and investors, and pitch practice sessions. There will also be 13 fireside chats and keynotes during the programme, with speakers including some of the world’s leading SpaceTech entrepreneurs and investors.

Rob Desborough, Investment Director at Seraphim Capital and Director of the Seraphim Space Camp accelerator, said: “Following the success of the previous three cohorts, we’re incredibly excited to welcome seven new startups for Mission #4. Previous alumni have raised or had offers of £26 million, which is a testament to the success of the accelerator programme and the relationships forged during the nine-week period.

“The aim of the programme is to identify the top one per cent of seed-stage SpaceTech startups. We believe each of the new seven startups embarking on Mission 4 companies has the potential to make a significant commercial impact across their specific markets.”
