Description

Startup Weekend Space!

This start-up weekend

A Techstars and Google for Entrepreneurs volunteer-led entrepreneurial event that will bring together Space experts, developers, businesses and designers to make our future in space a reality. If you have an idea you want to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve, this is the place to do it.

You’ll be equipped with everything you need to come along and help build a NewSpace business in 54 hours, from datasets, to space mission expertise and more. With support from mentors and the chance to pitch to an esteemed judging panel, this event will show you how accessible building a business in the space sector can be.

Are you excited by the idea of building a business in space? Do you have an idea, or a problem you'd like to solve, or do you just want to get involved in the NewSpace revolution, but don't know where to start, or who to start with?

What is Powering Space?

Powering Space is a nonprofit focussed on Space Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and is running an event series over five months, helping you build a business in the space sector. Our Space101 event will give you the opportunities, Space102 will give you the tools, and Space103 (after the Startup Weekend) will explain where funding comes from for space businesses. Once the Startup Weekend is finished, we'll be supporting all our entrepreneurs for three months, with introductions to funding opportunities, networking events and mentoring, before holding a SpaceUp UnConference, where all our teams can pitch to investors, angels and corporates for funding and further support.

London Startup Weekend Space is the starting point for building a whole new business.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team. Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can be anything, provided it involves the space sector in some way. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Your ticket includes:

  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • Opportunity to pitch your idea on Friday night
  • Use of your own .co site to get you up and running
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors, as well as opportunities to meet key players in the space sector
  • Datasets from Spire Global, Sentinel 2 and more
  • Support on the day from OpenCosmos to help you understand how to launch your own space mission
  • Access to customers to validate your business ideas against
  • Awesome space-themed swag - stickers, t-shirts and more
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.
  • Why we need you!

In order to create the most reliable and innovative design for our future with the capacity to actually launch into Space, we need you all! From entrepreneurs, designers of all types, students with a vision for the future and passionate visionaries that can already see the outer space possibilities.

Will I need an out of this world idea?

If you have an idea that you think is something that you want to take into the New Space market, we want to hear it! Maybe you’ll get an idea after to talking to all the like-minded space enthusiasts and feel up to pitching an on the spot concept? You don’t need to come armed with a proposal and we know that the weekend will be a great opportunity for everyone to come together and discuss how we will be Powering Space.
