The three winning teams will receive a prize of 1,000 euros. For the most promising teams, we have provided additional awards in cooperation with partners, such as incubation in the Bird Incubator, and participation in the EU-funded Space Hubs Network  pre-incubation program managed by ESA BIC Austria, which includes:

  • personalized 3-month mentorship to help entrepreneurs and early-stage startups further develop their business idea and concept
