What do a all space related businesses have in common?
The answer: they all started with a bright idea. Especially in the space industry, those ideas need kneading, tweaking, perfecting, and specific knowledge and skills to bring it to life. Exactly for that time of experimentation, the Ignition Programme was launched: a 5-week programme especially for people who want to validate their idea and strengthen its base before they lift off. You’ll get a deep dive into:
- Discovering and enhancing the technical feasibility of your idea
- Validating your idea – is there a need for it?
- Researching how strong your idea’s connection is to space
In short, all tools and knowledge will be shared with you by experts to assure you’re ready for lift-off. Next to that, this pre-incubation trajectory can better your changes to get into the ESA BIC programme, where your journey will continue to get your idea or business from the ground.
Do you have a space business idea that you want to develop further before giving it a bigger commitment? Or are you wondering if the space connection of your idea is solid? Some say you should “start before you’re ready”, and that’s what we’re aiming for with the Ignition Programme.
We invite you to apply before August 25 for the Fall 2022 selection. Programme dates will be on September 2 / 9 / 16 / 23 / 30.
