Space isn't that far away: meet the 25 startups that are ready to conquer the unknown
Houston, X-Europe arrived in space! Last month we kicked off cohort 5 - Aerospace & SpaceTech, with 25 startups offering deeptech solutions in the upstream and downstream sectors. Focus, enthusiasm, optimism, ambition were the watchwords at our kick-off, and we couldn't agree more!

Time for presentations, networking, understanding companies' expectations, and articulating what will happen next, the programme launch went smoothly, nothing compared to a rocket ride to space. At the end of the meeting, with no time to waste, the companies got down to business and had their first group workshop: investment readiness training.
At X-Europe, we are interested in our companies growth, so, as usual, we give them opportunities to develop their skills by providing corporate matchmaking and investment support, training days with the Growth Tribe academy, workshops and mentoring sessions, access to the Acceleration Week at Design Terminal, and also, each startup will be assigned a mentor, to help the companies reach their goals more efficiently.
If interested, the startups can explore the markets in Amsterdam and Riga, taking advantage of the incubation spaces of TNW and TechChill. At the end of the cohort, the startups will have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at the SpaceTech Terminal conference, where they can meet investors, attend talks with experts, and have a lot of networking opportunities among peers. You will also be welcome to join so make sure to follow us on social media to not miss a thing!
