Dentons launches space tech start-up accelerator
Dentons is launching an initiative called Space Camp to help young tech start-ups to commercialize themselves in the UK.
The program sees Dentons legally assisting the start-ups and also providing them with office space. Lasting for nine weeks, the program’s first cycle begins in May with six data and satellite-led businesses participating. The second cycle is already slated to begin in September.
Dentons IP partner Justin Hill, a recent recruit from Olswang, made the distinction that while other accelerators aim to prepare businesses for investment, this program is “turning that on its head,” and is instead designed to take investment-ready businesses and accelerate their commercialization.
