Here you will find some of our current portfolio companies. Each of our great companies has been selected into our program through careful tender evaluation. As part of their application, they have presented to ESA a space-related incubation project. ESA and Business Finland fund these projects jointly. The average incubation project duration is 1 year at the end of which a successful company will graduate from ESA BIC Finland as an alumnus. For some of our companies, the space industry represents a new business area, or an opportunity to better serve and address their existing markets utilizing space assets or to find new customer segments.
