2nd December 2021 Green Space Startup Summit

We are closing the running year with our traditional ESA BIC Startup Summit: Join us at Haus der Wirtschaft in Stuttgart on the 2nd December 2021. This year, we focus on "Green Space". There will be an exhibition of ESA BIC Startups from Baden-Württemberg and other ESA BICs. They show which trends and developments in the area of sustainability and environment protection they pursue. While the exhibition is taking place, a Business Angel investment session and a background discussion on the financial side of New Space will be held in parallel panels. In the evening we will award the winners of this year's Galileo & Copernicus Masters competitions and, for the ultimate first time, the Green Space Award. You can decide. Join us.


Programm as follows below and for registration please use this link:

Register now: Registration to Green Space Startup Summit

THE LÄND with Green Späce

Willkommen to THE LÄND to all participants. The Green Space Startups are divided into five categories. All startups from the ESA BIC network are free to join as exhibitors. Virtual allocation is possible as well as presence in Stuttgart. About 12 to 15 places are available and expected to be filled. Give us your mission on Green Space and join us.

Ägriculture and Forestry

Agriculture and Forestry can benefit from space solutions: precision farming needs precise positioning through Galileo, GPS and co. Just digging and fertilizing, where it is needed, helps the environment a lot. Further, new kinds of food crops, including new ways of sensor based plant treatment, are beeing developed while planning deep space longtime missions. Last but certainly not least is the challenge to beat the nasty bark beetles habit of destroying our forest trees.














SAM-DIMENSION (present in Stuttgart)

We provide drone-based weed mapping that helps you to identify upcoming weed problems and enable your sprayer to apply the herbicide exactly where it’s needed. That leads to unprecedented performance and effectiveness, saving up to 70% herbicides.






Environmentäl Observätions
Ecologicäl and Sociäl Responsibilities

Ecological and Social Responsibilities can be supported by space technology. Are you happy using a toy if you find out that materials and workers are exploited in an illegal way or in a way which further destroys our environment. Furthermore, space solutions can be an enabler of ecological transformation of our economy. 








Efficiency of New Späce

Bringing tourists into space is not particular eco-friendly. But engineering skills which help New Space missions gain efficiency - that makes sense. Further there is a need for the Swabian Kehrwoche in order to clean up the more and more polluted orbits in space. 










New Mobility and Tränsportätion

Autonomous and shared driving are the thrilling challenges for mobility in the 21st century, far more than electrification. Empty cars and empty lorries are using infrastructure and resources more than necessary. We need more intelligence - swarm intelligence. And: The 3rd dimension of individual mobility is just beginning. Keep your seatbelt fastened: There is a lot to do for space solution driven startups.
