Spacetech is hot! Gone are government contracts and ROIs of 10-20 years. Spacetech has recently joined the rest of the startup scene as a valid investment vertical filled with nimble companies with scalable digital business models - solving the pains of real end users today! Join the Disrupt Space Summit to find the next investment opportunity among 50 carefully selected spacetech startups and learn about spacetech from experts and successful entrepreneurs attending from around the world.

   Hespul  (France) is a non-for-profit association that uses satellite irradiation data in order to assess the expected hourly output of each Photovoltaic power station. In case there is a difference  between the estimate and the actual production data, an alert is sent and the faulty system can be repaired as soon as possible.    © Anonymous

A dedicated workshop at the beginning of the summit will give attending investors a crash course on the investment opportunities of space. Questions answered could be: What are the risks involved compared to other sectors? How do you evaluate a potential opportunity in spacetech? What are the expected returns and time horizons? Hardware vs software?




Signing up as investors will allow you to receive an exclusive online booklet with the profiles of each of the 50 attending startup towards the end of February. The booklet will contain an overview of each startup's business case, target markets and team. Use the booklet to pre-filter interesting startups to talk to before, during and after the summit.

In the afternoon on the 13th of March, we will hold private meetings between attending startups and investors at the Rainmaking Loft - a startup hub at the center of Berlin. Attending investors can request meeting slots and Disrupt Space will facilitate the arrangements.

What sort of investors are the summit intended for?
The knowledge being shared throughout the summit is applicable to any private or public venture or angel investor wanting to get an introduction to, or to dive more deeply into spacetech.

How are the space startups selected?
Each space startup that applies is considered internally by Disrupt Space based on the team, the market the startup tackles and their technology capabilities.

How are the 1:1 meeting set up?
Late February 2017, the Disrupt Space team will send all registered investors an online booklet with profiles of each attending space startup. Part of the booklet will include instruction on how to set up meetings with the included startups.

What can I as an investor expect at the summit?
Although the Disrupt Space Summit features keynotes and panels to inform and inspire, the main purpose of the summit is to gather together the brightest space entrepreneurs around the world in one place and facilitate deep interactions between them and you as investors. Expect ample opportunities to interact and assess the investment opportunities with space entrepreneurs around the world.
