ESA Space Solutions is the go-to place for great business ideas involving space in all areas of society and economy. Our mission is to support entrepreneurs in Europe in the development of business using satellite applications and space technology.

Our programme is designed to provide multiple entry points such as ESA Business Incubation Centres (ESA BICs), ESA Technology Broker Network, ESA Business Application Ambassadors and the ESA Business Applications programme. We can also support your ideas of transferring space technology into non-space markets or vice versa.

ESA Business Applications is part of ESA Space Solutions that supports the development of sustainable services utilising space assets. It provides funding opportunities and expert support to entrepreneurs.

Space assets like satellite data or spaceflight technologies offer many opportunities and solutions to businesses. Are you an entrepreneur, are you running a start-up or an established business? Then you might be interested to apply for our different funding opportunities.

Below you find an overview of our activities. In 2017 we launched the Space Solutions Alliance, a network for space and non-space corporate organisations, research institutes and public institutions. We are also creating a club of active and retired space professionals for the ESA Space Solutions Mentorship Programme. Furthermore you can view the Alumni Network and contacts of the ESA BIC Executive Boards. The ESA Investor Forum takes place yearly and is our leading programme on international business support for ambitious and fast growing companies.
