SATELLITE Startup Space Competition 2019
All SATELLITE 2019 attendees will have access to Startup Space, a competition where entrepreneurs pitch their business and technology ideas to a panel of highly accomplished space professionals, investors, thought leaders, and fellow entrepreneurs.
Startup Space is your chance to watch lightning talks from up and coming professionals and companies on a variety of topics, including space (or general/tech) entrepreneurship, startup community cultivation, global entrepreneurship, young professional topics and more.
Contestants are placed into groups and are each given five minutes to pitch their company or product in front of a panel of judges.
This is followed by a five-minute period during which judges ask questions or make comments to the contestants. Judges score the presentations based on a standardized set of various categories.
The single contestant with the highest overall score overall will be named the contest winner and receive the grand prize.
No matter what business you’re in, at SATELLITE you’re in the business of meaningful connections. A conversation, a session, a handshake, an introduction… you never know when or where the next light bulb moment will come from. But you’ll have one at SATELLITE.
SATELLITE unites aerospace thought leaders, entrepreneurs, executives, engineers, end-users and enthusiasts together in one place for the largest and most important global connectivity technology event of the year.
