​Westcott Space Innovators is a monthly networking event for those that work in the space sector. This month, we will be providing a Westcott Business Incubation Centre (Westcott BIC) Showcase Webinar will be an opportunity for rocket propulsion, drone and autonomous systems and 5G communications start-ups to find out more about the Westcott BIC business incubation programme and research grant.

This event will provide an opportunity to learn more about some of the start-ups incubated at the Westcott BIC, their technologies, and how the Incubation Centre is supporting them on their entrepreneurship journey.
You will also hear about the 10 year development plan for Westcott Space Cluster. We will have a short Finance 101 class that will explore the different methods for raising private funding. Finally, you will find out more about our incubation programme and the research grants available.
