Startups Compete to Solve Space Exploration Challenges at Space Startup Summit

Nov 01, 2019

The Space Startup Summit is an opportunity to learn about the most important trends for startups in the space industries, hear about collaboration between government and small businesses, and see successful startups in action! The free event is open to everybody and is part of the Hyperspace Challenge, which is powered by CNM Ingenuity’s ABQid accelerator and the Air Force Research Lab New Mexico.

At the Space Startup Summit, venture capitalists, startups, and government leaders will come together to share the latest opportunities and trends in the space industry. To finish the afternoon, 14 startups from across the country will pitch their companies to a panel of government innovators, contractors, and investor judges, explaining how their technology will address the needs of specific space-exploration challenges identified by the U.S. government. The winning team will be awarded cash prizes to spur exploration of contracting opportunities with the government and accelerate solutions.

Reserve your spot at the inaugural Space Startup Summit, which will take place at Glorieta Station in Albuquerque's Innovation District on Nov. 20 from 1-5 p.m.
