A Voices from the Valley Masterclass with Entrepreneur & Oxford Alumnus Mike Lawton.

In this masterclass, Founder & CEO of Oxford Space Systems Mike Lawton will share his experiences in space entrepreneurship and what the founder’s journey feels like from initial idea to exit. Mike will also explore why large companies fail to innovate and thus create the opportunities for entrepreneurs.

OSS is Mike’s third business, having founded and exited two previous technology ventures. His Degree is in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, with first graduate position being as a Spacecraft Power Systems Engineer. After 6 months in post, Mike was promoted to Head of Spacecraft Power Systems Design, where he rapidly built a loyal team. In November 2019 it was announced that Mike has stepped down as CEO of OSS to pursue other opportunities but he will continue to support and promote the business.
