The fifth week of the Space3ac programme is on the way. Little time remains before the big “Demo Day”, during which projects would be presented in front of potential investors.A month of lectures, workshops, individual work with mentors, study visits and business meetings has passed in a blink of an eye. Right now, Space3ac teams are doing their “homework” – polishing technical and business aspects of their projects and preparing for the “Demo Day”. The event is scheduled for September 8th 2016 in Gdansk, during which they will present their concepts in front of potential investors.
As a unique and innovative space industry project, Space3ac is dedicated mostly to areas related to downstream space technologies, such as applications basing on Earth Observation or satellite navigation. Space3ac was launched on May 5th at a press conference held at the Polish Ministry of Development. The programme aims to activate and channel the energy of the European space industry towards applications with noticeable market potential. The accelerator is supporting selected entities and developing their projects under mentorship of experienced entrepreneurs and space sector experts. The end product of Space3ac will be projects developed up to a ready for investment stage – with teams ready to work, concepts with commercial capability and potential clients.
The range of topics that have been covered during the acceleration was very wide. Experts from Poland, Ukraine, Germany, Netherlands, Great Britain and even United States shared their knowledge and experience on space industry activities and technology development. The teams attended lectures and workshops on marketing and sales, communications, public speaking and even cooperating with the administration. They also had the opportunity to visit Pomeranian Science & Technology Park labs, O4 Coworking space in Olivia Business Centre while meeting companies (also coming from the space industry) and pitching.
