ENTREPRENEURS are being invited to an event to learn about starting and growing their own space-tech business.
The fully-funded two-day event is designed for entrepreneurs developing space applications - using satellite data to solve business and environmental problems.
It has been organised by the SETsquared Partnership in collaboration with UK Space Agency. The event announcement comes after a recent study revealed that the North-East region contributes £75m to the total UK space sector income.
A spokesperson from the North-East centre of excellence for satellite applications said: "This event will accelerate entrepreneurs’ ideas to market and we are delighted to host it here in the North-East.”
The event will take place from June 6 to June 7 at the North East Technology Park in Sedgefield.
