The UK Space Agency has sponsored a regional sprint programme that allows us to support high-growth potential companies working on satellite-based applications.
We have provided each company selected a support service worth £5,000 covering the delivery of a business and design sprint, including identifying the most pressing challenges and opportunities the company is facing during an initial meeting or call and then inviting the company for a full day sprint session.
The business and design sprint is a support service uniquely designed and developed by the Catapult to deliver value to businesses at any stage of development, from concept stage to large and well-established firms, focused on commercialising innovative satellite-based solutions. We use the concept of sprints to give organisations a focused approach to the development of new services and products in the space and satellite applications sector.
The support is centered on the sprint day, a high-energy, high-intensity session, during which the company and relevant Catapult experts go through the agreed topics using human-centered design inspired canvases to quickly explore them and find practical solutions. We guide organisations through the process in a streamlined, effective way that gets results – fast.
The output can vary according to the needs of the company, but it is usually a slide-deck outlining the key insights and recommendations from the sprint session.
