ESA BIC Switzerland

The ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Switzerland, powered by the European Space Agency (ESA) and one of the world’s leading universities: ETH Zurich, offers broad support packages to entrepreneurs and start-up companies to exploit space systems or technologies and help them to develop their non-space business on earth, or conversely to use a technology from earth in a space related application.
