Do you have a business idea that uses geolocation technology?  Are you interested in exploring how you might use satellite imagery in your business?

Then join us for an informal briefing on how the Satellite Applications Catapult could support your business to access space services and find out about two competitions, the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) and the Copernicus Masters, that offer cash prizes, business and technical support to start-ups and early-stage companies with ideas using satellite technology and data.

You don’t need a complete business plan to enter either competition, which are designed to support individuals or small companies with great ideas access the right technical and business support to succeed.

During the session, the UK competition team at the Satellite Applications Catapult will guide you through the application process and the evaluation criteria.  You will also hear about the experience of previous winners and applicants.
