The Cambridge company 3D Cube Sat was one of the winners of the Virgin Media ‘Three New Things’ Technology Award.
The three winning businesses will each receive a package of mentoring and support, including the chance to meet with Virgin founder Richard Branson to discuss their business plans, networking opportunities and up to £25,000 worth of free business telecoms.
3D Cube Sat says it is “changing the economics of space”. CubeSat structures are the casings for tiny satellites. They currently sell for $2,500, but 3D Cube Sat has created a new space-resistant material that reduces the cost by 75%.
