In an effort to accelerate innovation within the space industry, the Global Startup Ecosystem has partnered with several leading organizations, including the NY Space Alliance to create the first digital online accelerator in Space history.
The pilot accelerator program will launch on July 18-20, 2017. This program is the first of its kind for Space Innovators: galvanizing entrepreneurs, global thought leaders, investors, and researchers to accelerate innovation and participation in the Commercial Space era.
The accelerator program begins with a full series of boot camp workshops covering ideation, product development, marketing, customer acquisition, and funding. The boot camp is then followed by keynotes from astronauts, investors, experts, leading entrepreneurs and researchers connected to the Space ecosystem. The program concludes with a demo day where the top ten innovators pitch in front of prestigious judges from across the world for top prizes and a provision of mentors who focus on actionable training and development.Find out the companies selected for the 2017 cohort here.
