Exciting news! We can now reveal that Exodus Space Systems (represented by Mike) applied for and was awarded a place on the Startup Catalyst mission to London Tech Week, funded by the Western Australian Government Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation. As part of a delegation of over 40 Australian startup founders, investors, academics and government personnel from around the country, we will engage with more than 40,000 delegates from over 70 countries, in 300-plus events over the course of one big week in London!
As an early stage startup we’ll of course be seeking funding from investors, partnership with organisations where our interests align, and expressions of interest from potential future customers of our space debris removal services, but overall we’re looking forward to so many of the ways in which a week of meetings with some of the most innovative people on the planet can grow a company like ours.
This blog will cover many of our findings from the week, and these entries will also be reposted on our Facebook page, so you can either follow this website, or like us on Facebook to keep up with our journey. If you want hear more about the whole Startup Catalyst mission in general, you can follow the #SCLondon19 hashtag on Twitter.
Lastly, we’ve got a few questions for you dear reader… Do you know people in the UK space/tech industry that we should meet? Do you have suggestions for how we can help grow collaborations between space/tech-focussed organisations in the UK and Australia? And what do you think will be the best way Exodus can use this trip to inspire the creation of more startup companies in Western Australia? and/or convince more of the creative people here to take the plunge and dive into a new entrepreneurial career?
Our contact page is here, and we would love to hear from you.
