About: Mike Lawton Founder & CEO of Oxford Space Systems

I’m a serial entrepreneur, which is code for getting things wrong slightly less often than I get things right… I enjoy building early-stage, high technology businesses in demanding commercial environments: taking an idea from concept stage, raising external investment & building motivated teams that focus on delivery and value generation.

I’m excited about commercial opportunities in NewSpace​ – a sector in which my latest venture Oxford Space Systems is making great progress and setting a few of industry records in the process.

I’m a firm believer in promoting STEM and regularly present in schools, colleges and universities with the aim of inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurial engineers and scientists. I also frequently present at events in the UK and abroad on my entrepreneurial experiences and the process of raising equity finance for technology focused businesses.

I (or more correctly the smart guys & girls in my team) have won numerous business and technical awards both in the UK and overseas for Oxford Space Systems. I consider myself a pragmatic and enthusiastic leader with a hands-on approach who believes in direct reward for achievement. I have a pathological hatred for bureaucracy, preferring tangible progress in preference over shuffling paper.

Oxford Space Systems is an award-winning, venture capital backed, space technology business that’s developing a new generation of deployable antennas & structures that are lighter, less complex and lower cost than those in current commercial demand. We’re achieving this by combining proprietary new materials, such as flexible composites, with traditional space proven materials. Our development are focused on providing technologies that are lighter, less complex and lower cost than those in current commercial demand.

Our vision is to become a leading supplier of highly competitive deployable products for the global space industry. By working with leading academic and commercial collaborators, both in the UK and overseas, we’re developing genuinely innovative & disruptive boom, antenna and panel array technologies for the global space industry.

Based at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus – the UK’s rapidly growing Space Cluster – OSS enjoys access to the world-class facilities and expertise of RAL Space, together with support from the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC), Innovate UK, the UK Space Agency, the European Space Agency and the Satellite Applications Catapult.

Country: United Kingdom
