ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Northern Germany

The incubation centre (BIC) of the European Space Agency (ESA) in North Germany (ESA BIC Northern Germany) has its headquarters together with AviaSpace Bremen, the aerospace association of the state of Bremen, in BITZ, Bremen’s largest innovation and technology centre for high-tech companies and start-ups. ESA BIC Northern Germany brings new start-up impetus to the region, thus reinforcing the aerospace innovation cluster of the state of Bremen. AviaSpace Bremen supports aerospace “incubatees” with its network, PR activities and customised coaching sessions, not just during the incubation period, but also during the application phase and subsequently as alumni. The Starthaus is the central point of contact in Bremen’s start-up ecosystem and supports the start-ups in all issues of business development and also funding. The ESA BIC Northern Germany is managed by the Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO), an international network and branding company for European space programmes. In future, the ESA BIC Northern Germany will be expanded to the northern states of Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Berlin-Brandenburg.
