Founded in 2005 by Craig Clark MBE, CEO, Clyde Space was named after the River Clyde, the main river running through Glasgow, which once built a high preportion of all the world's ships. Craig’s romantic vision for the company was that this would one day be a reality for spaceships. A vision which is now coming to life, as in 2017 it was announced that Glasgow has built more satellites than any other city in Europe (BBC). The company has grown rapidly since starting up in 2005, in the process turning Glasgow into the ‘satellite capital of Europe’ and Clyde Space now support in some form 40% of CubeSat missions.
