Bonus: Westcott Expo 2022 – Small Business Growth


Share this page

This is the second episode in our three-week mini-series sharing live panel sessions from our Westcott Space Cluster Expo.

The Westcott Space Cluster is a growing nucleus of space-related companies developing new technologies in rocket propulsion, 5G communications, and in-orbit manufacturing to name a few. The site offers unique testing facilities in a secure and controlled environment where sector experts can help businesses to identify and benefit from the opportunities in these emerging fields.

The Expo, hosted in July this year, was a celebration and showcase of the organisations developing these next-generation technologies and building new opportunities for the UK space industry.

In this episode we’re sharing the Small Business Growth panel – companies with both a new and established presence within the Westcott Space Cluster discuss how the unique testing facilities on site are invaluable to their growth, why more international companies are putting down roots in the UK, and explore the next steps in a move towards more sustainable solutions for space.

This episode is introduced by our Chief Operating Officer, Lucy Edge.

The live panel is hosted by Avantika Gupta of Type One Ventures, and she is joined by Charlie Young of Plastron, Emily Dingle of URA Thrusters, Manny Shar of OrbitFab, and James Macfarlane of Airborne Engineering.
