ESA BIC Denmark
ESA BIC Denmark is the 21st member of ESA’s pan-European network of Business Incubation Centres. The incubator is led by The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in collaboration with the Danish Ministry for Higher Education and Science, University of Aalborg, University of Aarhus, The Danish Industry Foundation and other partners from academia, science parks, industry and Danish government agencies.
The main objective of the Danish ESA BIC is to create and strengthen communities of successful space related start-ups in Denmark by supporting 40 start-ups during the period of 2020-24. The activities will contribute significantly to growing clusters of space-based companies in Denmark.
Each start-up which is accepted into ESA BIC Denmark and associated with a regional ESA BIC incubation hub will be provided with a free-of-charge package of business coaching, technical support and cash incentives during an incubation period of up to two years.
