    A EUROPE-WIDE NETWORK TO NURTURE AND GROW YOUR SPACE BUSINESS

    ESA Business Incubation Centres (ESA BICs) are the largest network of incubators supporting space related start-ups in Europe. The objective is to support entrepreneurs with a space-based business idea and help them developing their product while getting their company off the ground. In the process, they create and grow clusters of space-related start-ups across Europe.

    Each incubation centre is managed by local champions who connect their ESA BIC to local industry, universities, research organisations, government, and investor communities. All the centres are embedded in local communities, but also have strong regional and national links. 

    The network provides excellent opportunities to connect start-ups with new business partners across Europe.

    The ESA BICs seek entrepreneurs who develop applications that use space-based systems (such as satellite navigation, earth observation, or satellite communication); use space technologies in a non-space domain; and/or who develop innovative products and services for the space sector.
