European Entrepreneurship & Innovation @ Stanford Engineering (ME421)
In our final Session Eight of 'European Entrepreneurship' we discuss the emerging SpaceTech startup and venture finance ecosystem in Europe, and the role that the European Space Agency (ESA) is playing here. Stanford Mechanical Engineering presents three founders from the ESA business incubator network across Europe, which is operated by ESA's Technology Transfer Programme office in Noordwijk (NL). These startups employ space-derived technologies to solve major challenges for European and global enterprises and consumers in medical imaging, secure data storage and family management. Our fourth speaker, Frank Salzgeber, leads ESA's efforts in SpaceTech startup acceleration, scaling and venture finance. His work at ESA is today at the cutting edge - globally - of public sector space-related technology transfer and commercialization.
