All SATELLITE 2019 attendees will have access to Startup Space, a competition where entrepreneurs pitch their business and technology ideas to a panel of highly accomplished space professionals, investors, thought leaders, and fellow entrepreneurs.
Startup Space is your chance to watch lightning talks from up and coming professionals and companies on a variety of topics, including space (or general/tech) entrepreneurship, startup community cultivation, global entrepreneurship, young professional topics and more.
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 single contestant with the highest overall score overall will be named the contest winner and receive the grand prize.
