Benefits of the Scottish Space Incubator Programme

The incubator programme supports your company for an incubation period of one year.  Throughout the incubation period, you will benefit from unparalleled business support and access to a wide business network through SoXSA, as well as a fully funded support package worth in excess of £15,000 including:

  • Desk space for 2 staff @ Tontine
  • Access to meeting rooms and meeting space within Tontine
  • Discounted rates on event space in Tontine
  • Enrolled on the i-Gap Accelerator programme
  • Attendance at DATA.SPACE Conference (June 2020)
  • Attendance at Industry event of choice
  • Company Innovation voucher (worth up to £1250)

The programme is open to start-ups or existing companies that can demonstrate high-growth potential.  To apply for the programme, your company has to demonstrate the use of space technology in your business model which could be something as simple as location-based services on an app or using and/or processing satellite imagery.

Incubator essential for company growth

The Incubator Programme was essential for Trade in Space in helping us to maintain a stable presence and a platform to build on. Being members fast-tracked us into the right discussions with support agencies in Scotland, and helped us to find staff and people to work on projects from the local universities. The practical help and advice that comes from the programmes leaders is also invaluable, and saves a lot of time, money, and effort which is especially important for a very early stage start up.
