Why Reaching Space meetings?
The goal of these Reaching Space meetings is to reach the business and investment in high-tech initiatives. The region of Noordwijk-Rotterdam is one of the most important regions for space science and space business in Europe. More and more entrepreneurs are recognizing that advanced knowledge of eg TNO, TU Delft or ESA, is easily accessible and provides a huge competitive advantage.

The initiators therefore have joined forces with entrepreneurs and investors to show how to make  business initiatives more viable. In an informal meeting environment examples and experiences will be discussed from the  venture capital market on how to achieve the best results.
