EarthSense Systems is one of the first companies to benefit from UK Space Agency incubation funding. Located in Leicester’s new hub for high tech, low carbon and innovative business, Dock, EarthSense has access to first class office, lab and workshop facilities, as well as business support services. Leicester’s Dock was one of only five regional incubators to receive funding from the UK Space Agency, designed to enable the provision of a supportive business environment to organisations like EarthSense. The Space Agency funding is designed to grow space in the regions and to assist entrepreneurs to develop small companies – an important path in realising the space sector’s ambitions to achieve a 10 percent share of the global space market by 2030. “Being located in such a prestigious and well supported business environment will be important for the success and growth of EarthSense,” commented James Eddy, Managing Director of EarthSense Systems.
