Joining us virtually from across the UK, US and Canada the Mission 6 cohort utilising New Space technologies to solve on-Earth problems, with massive markets and global applications.

We are taking them on a transformative 10-week journey with a focus on becoming investment ready and building corporate relations. The programme will culminate in an investor pitch event on the 1st of December, if you are interested in attending please see below for more details.

These innovative early-stage companies are working at the cutting-edge of New Space technologies. They are addressing opportunities in earth observation, space infrastructure, environmental monitoring and cybersecurity – utilising AI, Satcoms, Edge Computing, autonomy software, laser technology, Remote Sensing and more.

The Mission 6 cohort startups recently featured in Techcrunch are:

4pi Lab | Eradicating Wildfire Risk By Global Early Detection  4pi Lab will save billions by eradicating catastrophic wildfires globally. Our proprietary services solution utilizes our EPiC satellite constellation to generate real-time, wildfire detection and monitoring with AI alerted reporting. Our proven team with Canadian Space Agency support will report wildfires at an unparalleled 5m resolution.

Clutch Space Systems | Reducing Cost and Complexity with Software Defined Solutions for Space  With the launch of thousands of satellites serving communications, location, and timing systems, the space ground systems segment has become a $1bn market opportunity.  Utilising a proven satellite technology and having achieved over 10,000 fault-free passes, Clutch Space is leading the sector with rapidly deployable, highly scalable solutions based on software-defined ground segment which reduces the cost and complexity of Space Systems.

Helix Technologies | Precision Navigation for the Age of safe Autonomy – Helix’s precision SatNav antennas enable resilient centimetre-accurate geo-location for defence, autonomous vehicles and mission-critical applications in dynamic and challenging environments where traditional GPS is degraded by blocked signal paths, interference or malicious act.

Kinnami | Resilient Distributed Data for Edge Computing – Data today is not only in the cloud and in data centres. It is everywhere – on the computing edge, across devices, and it also needs to move around. Kinnami has created a unique resilient data platform that secures storage and access everywhere and already has applications within Satcoms, Defense and Enterprise. Our automated policy engine securely stores encrypted fragments of data and regulates their access across distributed networks of devices.

Starfish Space | Orbital Transportation Infrastructure for the New Space Revolution  Starfish Space is building orbital transportation infrastructure for the new space revolution. Founded by engineers from Blue Origin and NASA, their constellation of space tugs uses state-of-the-art autonomy software and robotics to provide on-demand transportation and station-keeping.

Sust Global | Transforming Climate Science into Actionable Intelligence – Sust Global quantifies the accelerating climate impacts facing the world’s biggest financial organizations, cities and supply chains. They deliver actionable intelligence by fusing frontier climate models, satellite-derived datasets and asset-level geospatial data. This new venture builds on the founding team’s deep expertise at commercializing geospatial insights at Planet Labs and Orbital Insight.

Vector Photonics | A New Way of Making Light – This is the first breakthrough in semiconductor Lasers Technology for 30 years. A spin-out of Glasgow University, Vector Photonics will develop products on a proprietary technology that will re-shape the datacentre market, reset the price/performance point of the LiDAR market and drive the expansion of sensing and biometrics.

With the support of our dedicated SpaceTech mentors, investors and corporate partners such as Airbus, Cyient, Dentons, Dstl, ESA, SA Catapult, Sprint and UK Space Agency, we are excited to see these new startups grow!

The UK Space industry has trebled in size since 2000 and is now one of the fastest-growing sectors in VC with $5 Billion of VC investment into SpaceTech startups in 2019. Our alumni of 35 have now raised over £35 Million in investment with 4 closing rounds in the last 2 months alone despite the difficult times we find ourselves in!

If you are an investor and would like to attend our investor showcase on the 1st December then please email for details on how to join.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
