NOTE: THIS OPPORTUNITY HAS A FOCUS TO ENGAGE CORNISH STUDENTS PRIMARILY. IF WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH CORNISH STUDENTS SIGN UP THEN PLACES WILL BE FILLED WITH STUDENTS FROM THE REST OF THE COUNTRY.
The local space sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is growing quickly. There are numerous opportunities within the area from both upstream (launch, rockets and space systems) and downstream (satellite applications, communications) innovations.
You have recently heard about a pot of funding available to young people that is asking for students to identify new business opportunities in the space sector.
You have been tasked to write a bid for a new space business that will take advantage of some of the latest innovations or adapt and improve current business that are already in operation.
This challenge will be split down into four key zones: Research, Business Idea, Marketing and Finance, you will be required to present your ideas in any format you deem appropriate, this could include a video, presentation, written report, product design or any other innovative way that you think will be best. The judging of the entries will consider how well each has been presented.
You will be split into random teams of 5 or 6 and each have a role to play in the formation of the idea and presentation back to Spaceport staff.
