Space start-ups get chance to attend US bootcamp

By

Ten NSW space start-up companies have a chance to take part in an intensive bootcamp learning experience in the United States.

Supported by the NSW Government, the start-up companies will attend the "Austrade Landing Pad" bootcamp program in San Francisco to be held over five days from 27 August.

Applications are now open until 7 August for 10 companies to apply to attend the bootcamp where they will be introduced to the highly developed San Francisco space industry ecosystem.

The NSW Government is covering flight and accommodation costs of up to $10,000 per company.

Australia’s first astronaut and NSW Space Industry Ambassador, Dr Paul Scully-Power, said government support of the bootcamp program was one of a number of key initiatives to help the space economy thrive.

“NSW is home to 41% of Australian space businesses, and is an Australian leader in the space industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for our best start-ups to learn from world leaders in space in the US," he said.

“NSW is also bidding for the headquarters of the Commonwealth’s new Australian Space Agency, and presents a compelling choice.”

Scully-Power says NSW is already the headquarters for Australia’s first space incubator and the state is working with 26 space education and research departments in eight universities.   

“We are working to build an Aerospace and Defence Industries Precinct in the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, a NSW aerospace industry development strategy is being developed, and we have the nation’s biggest start-up industry and the new Sydney Start-up Hub.”

The bootcamp program will include mentoring and business development from established US start-up businesses, networking and partnership opportunities, guidance on doing business in the US, and information on the industry’s funding environment.
