Explore the possibility to participate in the business incubation programme of the European Space Agency (ESA) and find out what’s in it for you and your future or present venture.

Managed by SBIC Noordwijk, ESA BIC Noordwijk is ESA’s business incubation programme in the Netherlands that enables founders and entrepreneurs to develop their space business related ideas and receive support during their adventurous journey.

We are calling for startups to take action. No matter what stage you are at – whether you want to validate your space business idea and bring it to market or get the push to finish a prototype that is already in the making – the ESA BIC programme will provide support as you advance your business model.

In this online webinar, you will meet the representatives and co-founders of two former incubated startups and successful companies. Hear the inspirational stories directly from the founders about their ESA BIC experiences (more details to be added here soon).

Get inspired to start your application journey to ESA BIC Noordwijk! We have two selection rounds each year – with the fall deadline for applications being 16 October 2024.

We can’t wait to hear what new business ideas will come in via the next selection round. Which startups will be transforming space data into climate action for the benefit of life on Earth? & which will be innovating with new space tech to concentrate on upstream technologies? We have to wait and see!

The webinar is hosted by Martijn Leinweber (ESA BIC programme manager) who will be on hand to answer your questions and whom you can meet in person at the (optional) informal ESA BIC Open House at SBIC prior to this webinar (details here).
