I had a brilliant time at this event organised by the Space Hub Yorkshire team. They invited me along to connect and talk to other early-stage entrepreneurs and innovators in the space sector, also learning from the different presentations and panels during the day.
It was two years to the day since opening an email from the UK Space Agency about my success with SatelLife, so it was great to meet people that I’ve been working with online for the first time.
I hear people emphasising that careers in space are more than becoming an astronaut and the festival was an eye opener for me with the range of roles and specialisms. So good to see beyond GNSS and environmental solutions for a day! I started out very niche in this sector so it was brilliant to get the chance to learn from the Leeds Rocketry team and their latest mission!
Great to share my work with others at the event and for Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, to recognise my achievements and plans with Galileo Masters and now the GNSS incubator programme. The Innovate Space Festival was also an amazing opportunity to join her in trying out some new VR experiences!
