Coaches and Mentors
Krzysztof Kanawka comes from Poland, but during the last 10 years he has lived and studied in Germany, UK, France and Norway before coming back to Poland. After 11 years in academia he decided to move to the business sector in the space industry. The first company, called Kosmonauta.net, was started as a Ltd. entity in 2012. This company quickly found its niche in the engineering/business consulting field. The company has also been creating its own downstream applications, utilising data from satellite navigation and Earth Observation. In 2014 the company experienced a boost due to funds from an investment fund, as one of the first Polish commercial entities in the space sector. The company, now called Blue Dot Solutions Ltd., manages several European Space Agency and Horizon 2020 portfolios as well as portfolios for commercial partners.
