SUN meets in Prague

Our programme is reaching its end, but we still have a lot to offer to build bridges between the space sector companies. This time, after a meeting at PODIM in Slovenia, we headed off to Prague to participate in the European Space Week, hosted by EUSPA, and this time we reinforced our presence, as we came with our startups.

After almost two years of online meetings, fourteen of our startups embarked with us on this journey through space. A great experience to meet the teams in person, network during the event and promote the project.

Representing the pre-incubation startups we had: Gheorghe Richter, CEO of ANRE, the CEO of PlaceQu®, Peter Matzanetz, Jonatan Domenech Arboleda from LAIA, the team from Allventures, and the team of ​​MicroMap

Also, seven startups from our pre-acceleration programme were present: Luis de Ita Maubant, CEO of Surplusmap, the CEO of Kreios Space Francisco Boira, from Matteriall Nano Technology BV the CEO Hakan Taner, Derek Ding, from DLTEO, Philippe Briot, from Smart Grid Control (SGC), and Benoit Hellebuyck, from Lelieur BV, and from Orbisky, the CEO Sylvester.

To complete the group we had our startups from the post-acceleration programme the CEO of MAGOS, Greg Agriopoulos, and Johannes Shumacher from Celestial Space Technologies GmbH.

Between plenaries, panel discussions about the current – and future – trends of the EU’s Space Programme and networking with policymakers, other startups, public authorities, investors and users, the participants of our programmes also had the chance to network with each other in a Space Hubs Network dinner where partners and startups built a tighter net.

Not only we had a great time meeting these amazing entrepreneurs but we also had the opportunity to participate in sessions at the event, and in our internal meeting, we also discussed the future objectives of the programme and how we can continue to add value to our participants. Stay tuned for our future adventures, beyond the horizon!
