Accelerate Your Space Startup: Apply for the 2023 AWS Space Accelerator Program
The AWS Space Accelerator, now in its third year, is offering a hybrid technical, business, and mentorship program for space startups worldwide.
The program is aimed at helping startups develop cloud-powered solutions for space sustainability and to positively impact life on Earth. The application period for the 2023 AWS Space Accelerator is now open, and proposals are due by March 6, 2023.
The rapid increase in global space activity highlights the need for solutions that ensure long-term sustainability of operations in space. AWS is committed to providing the secure, flexible, scalable, and cost-efficient cloud solutions that startups need to tackle this challenge. In 2023, the AWS Space Accelerator will be delivered in collaboration with TechConnect, a global leader in research and innovation, to bring together venture capital, global market expertise, and startup acceleration.
This year’s program will include up to 15 startups, a “Week Zero” kick-off in-person event in April 2023, and an in-person Demo Day in July 2023. The four-week program will be held virtually to promote global participation and will focus on innovative solutions for space sustainability, both for operations in space and for impact on Earth. Startups will receive up to $100K in AWS promotional credits and mentorship from space domain and technical experts with AWS experience.
AWS encourages privately held startups at all stages of maturity to apply for this opportunity. The selection process will take into account the innovative and unique nature of the project, the overall value it brings to global space sustainability, the creative use of AWS technology, and the team’s ability to deliver. Participants will benefit from collaboration and networking with other startups, AWS customers, and members of the AWS Partner Network, as well as space-savvy venture investors for fundraising opportunities.
