The French Space Agency (CNES), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the ESA Business Incubation Centers network led by the cluster Aerospace Valley, are organizing worldwide on 25th and 26th May 2018 the hackathon ActInSpace, a start-up weekend dedicated to space applications.

How does it work?
For 24 hours, and on the base of challenges proposed by organizers, teams (from two to five people) will be imagining and designing innovative services and products derived from space technologies, ESA or CNES’ patents and space acquired data. With the advice of business mentors and technical experts, teams will be working on real-life challenges and coming up with creative solutions that find everyday uses.

The winning teams will proceed to the global final to present their project to an international jury of experts on technology transfer and business development in Toulouse, France, in June 2018. All teams with promising projects will go on to receive guidance from partner incubators to accelerate their project and turn their idea into a real company.

What can you win?
The grand prize is a ticket for a weightlessness experience. But beside that, many more prizes are available, as the EBAN Women Entrepreneurship, The GSA Geekie Award, The Airbus prizes and the FabSpace Prize.

Participation in the competition is open to business creators, students, researchers, entrepreneurs, associations, companies, developers, users, job seekers, designers and space experts.

For the first time since ActInSpace’s creation in 2014, the hackathon has been brought across 15 locations in the United States by the help of New Man’s Business Accelerator: Atlanta (GEORGIA), Cambridge (MASSACHUSETTS), Cape Canaveral/Orlando (FLORIDA), Charlotte (NORTH CAROLINA), Chicago (ILLINOIS), Houston (TEXAS), Huntsville (ALABAMA), Las Vegas (NEVADA), Los Angeles (CALIFORNIA), Mountain View (CALIFORNIA), New Orleans (LOUISIANA), New York City (NEW YORK), San Francisco (CALIFORNIA), Seattle (WASHINGTON), Washington (District of Columbia).
