New support for North East businesses blasts off

We’re delighted to be partnering with Business Doctors and the North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence to run a new free workshop designed to help North East business owners exploit opportunities in the growing UK space sector.

Seven out of 10 companies in this £15 billion income UK Space Sector are SMEs and our half day Launch Pad Seminar can help you identify and evaluate any opportunities for growth for your business in this sector.

We’ve had a number of businesses take part in the first Launch Pad Seminar. Gary Thompson of Jagdesign took part and said, “When running a business, it is often difficult to justify time away from the day-to-day operations. I have to say that the time spent at the event was well worth it, and I have already used some of what I learned during the morning to improve my understanding of business improvements.

“I would recommend to anyone running a business that they attend the event. You never stop learning, and you will learn a good deal from being part of this excellent program.”

Graham Robson of Business Doctors said, “Where ever you are in your business, this is a fantastic opportunity to collaborate in a peer group setting for a genuine business recovery and growth agenda, with a focus on the UK Space Sector. As well as sharing expertise and gaining access to wider business knowledge and resources, we also offer a one to one follow up session to focus on the practical steps you can take to grow your business.

“We’ve been delighted with the response from participants so far – and encourage any North East SME to come along to one of our future free workshops.”
