Five best teams from phase one will be learning all about conducting and managing space projects. We provide mentoring from exquisite Polish and foreign experts in technical and business fields. Accommodating the projects to the needs of concrete firms, or giving them a strong market context at the very early stages, is pivotal to this concept. Such structure of the programme is the result of the experience gained by our Black Pearls VC experts, in their everyday cooperation with startups. We know that success comes from commitment and hard work both on the side of the organisers and participants of an accelerator programme.The final stage the first accelerator recruitment will take the form of a presentation delivered to an international group of investors during a Demo Day, which takes place on 8 September.
