Event description
Hear success stories from companies at different growth stages, in the transformative Space Park Leicester setting, with pure networking

About this event

In the era of the Space Economy, Space Park Leicester has the ambition to transform the business landscape. Celebrate with us entrepreneurial spirit and industry-academia collaboration as the key ingredients to drive innovation and foster business growth. A start-up, a scale-up and an established SME will share their point of view, comment on challenges and opportunities, and inspire entrepreneurs and innovators to address societal needs, embrace change and benefit in their respective markets from the growth of the Space Data supply chain. A networking lunch will close the event.

Innovation Friday provides an excellent opportunity to network with the Leicester Innovation Hub and Space Park Leicester teams, enterprising graduates and academics, innovators from local and national companies, recent student/graduate start-ups, businesses and innovation support organisations in a friendly and informal environment. You have the choice to either come in person or join online.
