Entrepreneurship day

 

Through different prizes and competitions such as GSA's MyGalileoSolution and MyGalileoDrone, the GSA is supporting and guiding a new generation of entrepreneurs and start-ups to ensure EUSpace is enabling the creation of innovative applications and solutions to respond to current and future challenges.

 

Entrepreneurship Day will present some of the most innovative projects from these competitions. The half-day event, which will take place online, will bring together investors, accelerators, the start-up community, tech influencers, GNSS innovators and everybody interested in space to hear from around 80 EU start-ups about how their Galileo-based innovations, developed with support from the GSA, are meeting important societal challenges and supporting the EU strategic agenda. 

Join us at the Entrepreneurship day to discover the latest technological innovation using Galileo, developed across various application areas such as Crisis and Emergency response, Smart transport for Green Deal, Solution for Digital Age, Cybersecurity.
