Ask us all your questions and be ready for the kick-start of your space business.

The ESA Business Incubation Centre (ESA BIC) will be introduced and presented by the Noordwijk programme manager Martijn Leinweber.

During the session, you will also discover all benefits of our programme and learn how and when to apply to profit from the following:

  • Zero-equity funding

  • Business support & coaching
  • ESA BIC branding and visibility
  • Exclusive events & training

We have two selection rounds each year – with the next deadline for applications being 27 March 2024.

(There is an optional soft deadline of 18 March, where a pre-check of all documentation can be carried out to ensure all the required information is supplied by the selection deadline.)


The Space Business Innovation Centre Noordwijk (SBIC Noordwijk) supports space related startups and initiatives in various stages of their development. Next to ESA’s business incubation programme, we also manage pre-incubation and Dutch relocation programmes. Jointly with NL Space Campus, we are the ESA Technology Broker for the Netherlands. Last but not least, we equally boost innovation via competitions, hackathons and specialised space & business masterclasses and training, and offer community membership to anyone interested in getting involved in our space business network.
