Business and Investment Development Agency

ESA BIC Czech Republic

Space for your stellar ideas

Via the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre (ESA BIC), we support young companies that are bringing space technologies back to Earth or developing new technologies for use in space. 

At our incubators in Prague and Brno, we offer office space where you can receive comprehensive consulting, technical and administrative support and advice on your business strategy. With us, you can take part in Czech events such as the Startup World Cup & Summit, Czech Space Week and Veletrh vědy, as well as foreign conferences, e.g. EU Space Week, Space Tech Expo in Bremen or International Astronautical Congress (IAC).

We supported projects such as stratospheric platforms, luxury lightweight bicycles made of composite space materials, small satellites, drones, an x-ray machine for verifying the authenticity of artworks and applications that help farmers. These are projects that combine space technologies and business ideas, and use space patents, satellite navigation and Earth observation, i.e. technologies that help us in everyday life.
