    Garage48 is delighted to welcome you to a special bootcamp aimed for teams using space technologies or space data for creating new solutions. 

    The bootcamp program is a 5-day intensive course that consists of teamwork, intensive mentoring, hands-on lectures and inspirational talks. You’re going to learn about product-market fit, customer validation, prototyping, marketing, business models, funding, pitching and the legal side of entrepreneurship.

    The goal is to validate your business idea with real customers, finish your MVP (minimum viable product) and get your team ready to pitch for investors.

    During the hackathon we will take good care of you – you will be mentored by the best, fed the yummiest and accommodated at the Hektor Design Hostel.
