ESRIC has opened applications for the fourth edition of its Start-up Support Programme. Applications are open until 07 January 2024.
While the interest in spacetechs has slowed down a little over the past year, funding and support for space ventures is as valuable as ever.
The programme which first launched in 2021, is open to technical solution providers that enable the development of an in-situ space resource utilization chain. To get an idea of what that means, have a browse through the previously selected ventures (edition 1 and edition 2).
Any startup or early-stage venture of a research lab, owner of technical solutions or concepts that address harsh environment operational challenges for raw materials prospection and processing can apply to the programme here.
Benefits of participating in the ESRIC Startup-Support Programme include the regular coaching and learning opportunities as well as access to non-dilutive funding in cash for an amount of up to €200k.
Applications are open until 07 January 2024. The top-ranking projects will be presented during a pitching session on 22 January 2024, the top 5 of which will be selected to enter Phase 1 of the programme.
