The incubator supports young start-ups and their promising ideas around space technology

From state-owned enterprise to start-up - Beyond Gravity (formerly RUAG Space) has set itself this maxim as its goal. With its own eight-week start-up program, Beyond Gravity now offers aspiring entrepreneurs direct access to the international space community. André Wall, CEO of Beyond Gravity explains, "It is our vision to advance humanity and enable exploration of the world and beyond. I am very much looking forward to shaping the future of space travel together with selected startups. "

Application deadline until mid-August - start in October

The three focal points of the incubator are space technology itself, the optimization of value chains, as well as the human factor in general, because we believe that people make the difference. The first program will start in October 2022. The application period runs until mid-August. The three to five selected teams will be accompanied step by step in an eight-week program at Beyond Gravity's headquarters in Zurich from the idea to seed funding maturity. Finally, a jury of internal and external experts selects the winning projects. Stefan Knoche, Director Transformation at Beyond Gravity explains: "All entrepreneurs who are still in an early phase can apply, including those who do not yet have a product on the market."
