Business Engagement

The Satellite Applications Catapult supports businesses of all sizes and maturity by providing a range of enabling services, either delivered by us or through third party organisations.

We have a dedicated business engagement team with a broad range of capabilities that tailors our services to meet the specific needs of each business or SME. We provide different levels of support, depending upon your requirements and objectives.

Expertise and Access to Specialist Facilities

For companies with high growth potential, we provide technical and business support to help develop ideas into viable trading businesses. This can be done through our Sprints or Spin-up Factory.

Practical Help and Mentoring

We offer practical help from experienced entrepreneurs, industry experts and other independent business support providers. Our vibrant group of mentors can provide the knowledge and know-how needed to get a company off the ground and help it grow into a thriving, profitable business.

Guidance on Funding and Finance

We provide neutral advice on relevant sources of funding and help with accessing these. We have strong links to the UK’s Business Angel networks, venture capital community and other funding agents.

Our Business Plan Sprints and Investment Readiness Training will arm you with a wealth of knowledge on how to make your company attractive to a funder or investor.

You don’t have to be a start-up business to get support from us relating to finance and funding. Although we help businesses find start-up capital, we can also help you if you need growth capital for your business to scale.


We provide flexible workspace packages in our dedicated facility, Co-Space. Not only will you benefit from direct access to Catapult services and expertise, but you’ll also be situated with other businesses going through the same development curve.
