LAUNCHPAD is a 12-day European Space Agency (ESA) BIC DK pre-incubation accelerator program for selected hardworking entrepreneurs to create moonshot startups using space to benefit earth.
The World's First Pre-Incubation Accelerator for Space-Tech
Do you want to become a space entrepreneur?
Do you see yourself as hardworking, disciplined and dedicated?
Do you want to utilize space to benefit earth?
Then LAUNCHPAD is for you.
What happens at LAUNCHPAD?
With LAUNCHPAD we developed a brand new way of creating early-stage space-tech startups. LAUNCHPAD is a fusion of the well-known venture builder concept and an educational accelerator, with a space-tech twist. Every year we select a cohort of extraordinary entrepreneurs, both with and without an idea for a space-tech startup, to create totally new ventures.
During the program we work intensively with the cohort for 12 days, to form strong teams, build their startup, and refine their pitch to investors. Each round culminates in Demo Day, where the startups present their ventures to a carefully selected, invite-only audience.
