One of the hardest parts of running your space startup is having access to capital. At TC Sessions Space (December 16-17) we're bringing together some of the best space finance programs to help founders figure out how to raise money for their startups. Each scholarship program has 30 minutes for founders to figure out how to get access to their funds. You can then use CrunchMatch to arrange individual meetings with your representatives to discuss your proposal.
Here are just a few of the programs you can participate in:
The Space Force Accelerators – – Learn how the Hyperspace Challenge, Catalyst Space Accelerator, and other government accelerators can connect you with the US Space Force
Advanced space technology with NASA SBIR – – Learn more about NASA's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
