What is a space tech startup?
Space plays a part in almost everything we do and in some of our planet’s biggest industries. A space tech startup is a startup with technologies (products or services) related to the space industry.
In general terms, it must be evident that “space” (space technology or a space-based service such as satellite communication, navigation or earth observation) is needed. Alternatively, it must be evident that the proposed technology or service can actually be used in a space context.
We seek entrepreneurs with innovative ideas for using space technologies or developing applications to create new products or services in a non-space environment. Please get in touch with your local ESA BIC event organizer for further guidance in case of doubt.
Read below what previous participants said about the two pre-incubation accelerator programs, SPACE LAUNCHER (NO) and LAUNCHPAD (DK) by ESA BIC Norway Kjeller Innovasjon and ESA BIC Denmark hosted in 2020 and 2021. We are bringing that experience and network to NORDIC LAUNCH!
