ESA Business Incubation

ESA Business Incubation and its associated network of business incubators are designed to bridge the gap between an idea and an actual business by helping a technology transfer project get off the ground and assisting its development into a viable business.

“Establish your start-up company based on the new services and applications emerging from the creative use of space technologies and systems in non-space sectors.”
The Technology Transfer Programme Office (TTPO) seeks entrepreneurs with innovative ideas for using space technology, applications and services in a non-space environment.

ESA Business Incubation provides technical expertise and business-development support.

Entrepreneurs: Contact us if you have an innovative idea or business plan based on using a space technology or system in a non-space environment. If you are ready for commercial development, submit your proposal to join the ESA Business Incubation scheme.

Space companies: Contact us to outsource the spin-off initiatives of your employees in an innovative win-win scheme.

Research Centres and Universities: Encourage your staff and students to set up their own companies bringing leading-edge research to the marketplace through ESA Business Incubation.

If you have questions regarding ESA Business Incubation, please contact us on ttp @ or directly at one of the three ESA Business Incubators.
