Satellite Finance Network

With you every inch of the way

Finance and regulatory network for the UK space industry


At this unprecedented time of COVID-19, the Satellite Finance Network (SFN) and UKspace are collaborating to provide their respective members with an opportunity to “Connect”. This is a simple introductory service for skilled individuals and companies to connect with each other. We are also looking at upgrading the existing BackonBoard Project and have established a Mentoring Project to assist companies at this time.

The Connect Project seeks to provide a medium for individuals and companies in the space industry to be introduced to each other, across these three projects as described below.

There are no charges for any introductions made by the SFN and UKspace.

These introduction services under the Connect Project are for members of the SFN and UKspace (who are also members of the SFN) only; they are not recruitment services carried on as either an employment agency or an employment business. If you wish to enquire about becoming a member of the SFN in order to become eligible, please contact us.

Please note that in relation to the Connect Project, the SFN and UKspace post all information about an individual member or a corporate member on an “as provided” basis by the relevant individual member or corporate member. The SFN and UKspace do not (and do not use any third parties to) carry out any checks to validate or verify the information that is provided to them by an individual member or a corporate member. Neither the SFN nor UKspace are responsible for the accuracy of the information furnished by a SFN member in relation to the introduction services under the Connect Project. It is the responsibility of anyone seeking to rely on this information published on the SFN website to carry out their own due diligence.

Connecting Skills Project

The Connecting Skills Project is an introductory service for, particularly, SME corporate members looking to find skilled individual members in the space and satellite industry.

BackonBoard Project

The BackonBoard Project is aimed at providing start-ups and SME corporate members access to a pool of experienced individual members. These are individual members who can act as advisers and/or potential non-executive directors and offer their valuable commercial, corporate or financial experience to support the corporate members to grow and succeed.

Mentoring Project

The Mentoring Project is aimed at start-ups and SME corporate members seeking experienced help from the leading experts in the space and other industries. The SFN and UKspace wish to support start-ups and SME corporate members particularly at this time and have a network of experienced mentors from across several industries who are able to provide support to companies free of change for three to six months.
