Space2Earth Accelerator 2022 – Call for startups open now!

Boost your company and enter new markets! Space4Impact is looking for startups and scale-ups offering satellite data analytics and services for versatile applications on Earth.

The Space2Earth Accelerator is an international acceleration programme for downstream space applications supported by the Canton of Vaud. The programme runs from January to June 2022 and features three in-person events in Switzerland and one in the United Kingdom. The goal is to bring together space startups and strategic partners across industries to boost the application of satellite data in new markets. Startups will have the unique opportunity to pitch their product, learn about industry needs and find new customers.

The three first events of the Space2Earth Accelerator will be industry events, where industry representatives will present their company and describe their needs, then the startups will pitch their solutions. The themes of the industry events are:

  • #1 Insurances & Utilities (in Switzerland)
  • #2 Agriculture & Supply Chain (in Switzerland)
  • #3 Sustainable Finance (in the UK)

The final event will be the Closing Event, where startups pitch in front of investors and participate in a startup competition.

The program is completely free for startups (no fee, no equity) for startups worldwide (travel expenses will not be covered) at a go-to-market stage.

The call for startups is open now and runs until the 22nd November 2021. More information here.

#SpaceWatchGL Opinion: Say YES to diversity and gender equality in the space sector: a look at the Diversity and Gender Equality Project Group of the SGAC

Diversity is difficult to measure and quantify, given all the aspects and shapes it takes, yet it is easy to witness and observe the lack of it in many fields including the space sector. If the space sector and all its disciplines should be used to help improve life on earth and observe it (amongst other purposes), shouldn't it be represented by all terrestrial individuals equally? In an ideal world, yes! But history and social biases have prevented our progress towards this perfect world, and we find ourselves today with a space sector still dominated by cis white-male individuals.
