Are you a student with an idea for a space startup? Enter our Young Space Entrepreneurs Competition for a chance to pitch your idea to industry experts and win prizes valued at over $1000!
Students will receive a wealth of knowledge and advice from experts through a series of webinars focused on startups in the space sector, as well as feedback on their proposed business plans. The top 5 teams will be invited to make their case to our judges at our conference, Ascension, on March 4, 2017.
We will talk about this competition at an information session held on November 13, 15:15 CST, at the Manitoba Museum, which will also be broadcast live on our YouTube channel. At this talk, we will describe the competition, provide case studies of successful startups in the space sector, offer a few tips and guidelines for your business plans, and answer questions from the audience and from social media.
UPDATE: The info session has been postponed to December 4, 16:00 ET. We are excited to feature a member from our Board of Advisors, Ryan Anderson. He will give an introduction to the Canadian and global commercial space landscape and talk about why this is an interesting time to start a space company. Ryan is an independent consultant in the space and satellite communications field with over 10 years experience. In the past he has worked for Urthecast and Telesat on leading edge space systems in communications and earth observation.
