Space Hackathon Estonia


“The space industry is changing rapidly, and the opportunities for entrepreneurs to start their own space related business is better than ever - we are curious to see how Estonian start-ups are going to help to transform the space industry as we know it!”, Frank Salzgeber, ESA.

Who should attend: space entrepreneurs, startups, teams, and individuals interested in re-using space technology on earth.

Why attend: You will get business and product development support by experts from the European Space Agency (ESA) and Estonian start-ups. Free food and fun.

What's the perspective: The Space Hackathon Estonia will serve as a first step preparation for the upcoming ESA Business Incubation Centre in Estonia - shortly, this may be a very efficient start of your own space-related start-up.
