Concepts by teams of entrepreneurs supported by FedTech and enabled by cutting edge NASA technologies will be showcased
WILMINGTON, Delaware — The Innovation Space™ will host the first NASA Climate Tech Startup Studio showcase, powered by FedTech, this fall. Planned for October 4, 2023, the showcase will feature pitches from a cohort of entrepreneurs who are applying existing NASA technologies toward new commercial climate-focused solutions. Entrepreneurs are currently engaged in curriculum through the Startup Studio to create new climate tech businesses.
“As an accelerator of clean-tech startups ourselves, we at Innovation Space could not be prouder to host the inaugural NASA Climate Tech Startup Studio showcase for new climate solutions-based businesses,” said Bill Provine, founder, president and CEO of Innovation Space. “When a partnership combines advanced NASA technologies with brilliant entrepreneurial minds and FedTech’s intensive coaching, exciting prospects are bound to result. We are eager to learn more about these innovative climate startups and the individuals behind them when they visit us this fall.”
Innovation Space will host the showcase as well as participate in judging at the event. The Startup Studio cohort was selected this spring, kicked off in June and will complete a 16-week program in which each team develops a business model and seeks investment funding for their concept. The showcase serves as the culmination of this startup studio experience and is expected to feature business concepts for a range of NASA technologies in the climate space.
