Most frequent questions and answers

Teams in our accelerator program will get an initial investment. Plus, all teams will get access to our investor network and expert feedback on investor readiness.

We need to differentiate – you can be a part of the accelerator or incubator. We offer 6 month contracts with an option to extend 3 more months for our participators on our accelerator program. Our incubator part can offer contracts for 1 year.

Yes and no. We believe in great community and this can only happen if you are on site and and can connect with the people. But due to Covid-19 reasons since 2020 this is different. So some stuff will happen virtual as long as the situation doesn´t change. For testing and the missions sure you will be on site. And trust us we have a good environment to work hard, but party hard as well :wink: And you never know… maybe the conditions are as perfect that you never want to leave.

We think early stage startups are the best fit. Ideally you have to be at least two people. That’s the minimum size we start thinking about you as a startup.

Right now we are mostly concentrated on the EU-region. But even if you are from somewhere else don´t hesitate to contact us. We are always keen to meet new people and believe in strong networks. And maybe in future we extend the reach or you want to have a project here.

We offer access to a hangar and a test field with modern technology. If this is not enough there is aerospace available, or one of the longest runways in Europe. Even if you have special requirements we are always helping you to find the best test solutions. The testing facilities so far were good enough for startups like Lilium, Quantum and many others. And more like test rigs is about to come…

A wide range. Starting from “How to…” workshops like finance, HR, Marketing etc. but also specific things like SORA certification, a radio licence to talk to the tower… But most importantly things like investor-readiness and mentorships.

Yes. We offer special workshops to understand the policy, find possible suggestions and give possibility to talk to experts to get your things up in the air.
