My name is Luke Pulford and I run Dock (, Leicester’s innovation centre for high tech businesses.

In partnership with the University of Leicester we have just been awarded a grant from the UK Space Agency to launch Leicester’s first incubator for businesses in the Space sector or those who use space data (GPS, Sentinel data etc).

The incubator, named “Downstream @ Dock”, will be aimed at early stage, start up and pre-start businesses in these fields.

We are having a launch event on 19th May at 17:30 at Dock, the event will give us the chance to explain our offer to businesses as well as to hear from a couple of speakers. There will be food drink and even some space hardware on show.

Please can you save the date and also forward this onto anyone else who you think would be interested in joining the program or who would like to be kept up to date with its progress.

More details will follow on soon. However if I you have any questions or would like more info please contact me on 01162 257900.
