The Space Startup Summit enables attendees to learn about the most important trends for startups in the space industries, hear about the collaborations that are occurring between government and small businesses as well as witness successful startups in action — this event is held on November 20, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., MST, at Glorieta Station, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
At this event, the latest trends in space industry investments, stories from startups who have successfully worked with government and pitches from 14 selected startups from across the United States are on the agenda. These small businesses will pitch their companies to a panel of government innovators, contractors, and investor judges, explaining how their technology will address the needs of specific problems sponsored by government users. The winning team will be awarded cash prizes to spur exploration of contracting opportunities with the government.
The three-day intensive program will close with the Space Startup Summit, a half-day of conversations, pitches, and celebrations centering around the state of the space industry for startups, the future of collaboration between space industry leaders and demos from the participating Hyperspace Challenge teams.
