CASSINI Business Accelerator is open for applications until 31 March 2023

Open Call CBA 2023

Launched in January 2023, the CASSINI Business Accelerator is the biggest space start-up accelerator in Europe. It will consist in a six-month acceleration programme offering top-level business and investment coaching, training, events, and more that brings together 20 of the top space start-ups in Europe.

The accelerator is tailored to meet the needs of space companies in their growth stage that already have a product on the market and have achieved sales or pre-commercial success, and that want to sustain their commercial growth by developing new market opportunities.

CASSINI Business Accelerator will give access to key stakeholders across Europe, provide a unique collaboration between 58 pan-European accelerator locations, and exploring cross-industry synergies outside of the space ecosystem.

The 6-month programme will be punctuated by monthly deep-dive sessions, expert webinars and E-learning trainings, bringing on top a €75,000 voucher for start-ups who will successfully complete the programme.

Applications for our first batch, from May to November, are open now. Interested companies have until 31 March to join the open call.

We are hosting a virtual Q&A session on March 14, 2023 from 15:00-16:00 CET, for those in the application process, and the ones hesitating to join.
Registration and access to the Webinar via EUSPA’s LinkedIn page:
