We are living at an interesting time where the global space economy is large and growing and where the UK is becoming a major player in the space industry. Indeed, since the turn of the century, the UK space economy has outperformed the global space economy. More importantly, it has created low cost access to space as well as an accessible environment in favour of early stage investment for private investors to shape this exciting industry.

LBA team in collaberation with the team behind the Seraphim Space Fund are delighted to invite you to the Inauguration of the UK Space Tech Angels programme proudly hosted by at the central London offices of Fieldfisher; Riverbank House, 2 Swan Lane, London, EC4R3TT. This exciting inaugural event will be held on Tuesday 6th December with registration opening at 5.15pm and the event itself running from 5.45pm to 8.00pm.

This launch exclusive event will bring together the key players in the UK Space industry such as Seraphim Capital, the UK Space Agency, Satellite Applications Catapult, Airbus Ventures and the European Business Angels Network (EBAN) to kindly support this early stage investment initiative beyond the limits.

We have also selected 3 early stage and potentially high growth space companies at different stages, SEIS/EIS eligible, to present their business opportunities in 3 minutes in order to give you a taste of a typical early stage angel investment in this sector.

The event will be followed by drinks and canapés, allowing our investors and the space community and well-know companies to mingle with one another and with the LBA team.
