The workshop was curated by Dr. Uday Phadke, Executive Chairman, AcceleratorIndia using the RiffStream# methodology to explore new ways of facilitating collaboration across this exciting sector in both countries as the basis for delivering commercial deals.

The focus for RiffStream#Bangalore-III was to build a detailed understanding of the rapidly evolving Indian space sector ecosystem and to identify real commercial opportunities within. To achieve this, players across the entire UK-India space sector value chain, including „upstream‟ satellite design and build, launch infrastructures, „mid-stream‟ flight management, control and systems, and „downstream‟ applications and services were engaged.
