SpaceCom will host a full-day workshop for start-up entrepreneurs to help them refine their business plan and pitch and provide insights on identifying investment sources. Investors and accelerators will participate as mentors and judges to select the most promising of the entrepreneurs’ proposals to be showcased throughout the SpaceCom 2017 conference program. SpaceCom attendees will participate in selecting the top entrepreneur who will receive a prize of $5,000. Special consideration will be given to start-ups whose proposals apply space technologies to terrestrial industries, including aerospace, medical, energy, advance manufacturing, maritime and agribusiness. The workshop and competition will be managed and facilitated by Stephan Reckie, Principal with Angelus Funding.
