WITNESS THE NEXT BIG IDEA IN AEROSPACE!

Startup Space will take place Tuesday, March 10, 2020, in the SATELLITE Unveiled Theater, located on the Exhibit Hall floor!

The SATELLITE Conference & Exhibition is proud to bring startup companies and investors together for the 4th Annual Startup Space. This entrepreneur pitch competition is designed to stimulate investment and growth in the industry by setting up private meetings for the grand prize winner!

CONTEST FORMAT

Fourteen contestants are placed into groups and are each given five minutes to pitch their company or product in front of a panel of judges. This is followed by a five-minute period during which judges ask questions or make comments to the contestants. Judges score the presentations based on a standardized set of various categories. The contestant with the highest overall score from each group will be named the contest winner and receive the grand prize: private pitch meetings with companies like Starbridge Venture Capital, Boeing HorizonX Ventures, Khosla Ventures, and Space Angels!
