Smallspark Space Systems has been awarded the UK Space Agency Glyndwr Innovations Prize by The OpTIC Centre in North Wales, along with £10,000 funding to further develop its business.
This award provides major validation for the company’s long term vision of Reigniting UK Space and delivering the capability to launch from UK shores. Smallspark, now 3 months old, was founded by Cardiff University Graduate Joseph Ward, and is now able to lay out a strong, concise argument for its proposed business and technology development strategy.
It’s amazing to be given this award so early in our development, and it acts as a phenomenally strong validator for our future plans. The UK Space Agency does phenomenal work in supporting early stage businesses, and we will use this to help us go on to do great things.
-Joseph Ward, CEO
