The 100% Moon incubator
A WORLD FIRST!
TechTheMoon, the first incubator in the world dedicated to startups developing products/services related to the lunar economy, has just been launched.
SERVING THE LUNAR ECONOMY... AND THE EARTH!
The race to the Moon is in full swing. In 2024, the first lunar explorers will land on our satellite, to settle there permanently from 2030 with an autonomous and long-term settlement.
To meet the challenge of "living and working on the Moon in a sustainable way", CNES, Connect by CNES and Nubbo have joined forces to create the world's first startup incubator, dedicated 100% to the Moon.
- To innovate for and through the Moon, in order to be able to settle there permanently,
- To achieve the commercial launch of solutions that meet lunar needs AND can be transposed to terrestrial needs.
5 STARTUPS PER YEAR
Based in Toulouse, within the La Cité startup campus, TechTheMoon will welcome, starting in October 2021, a class of 5 innovative startups that will benefit from 12 months of support.The incubates will be technically supported by SpaceShip France, CNES and SpaceShip France experts, and coached by Nubbo's business and entrepreneurship specialists.
High-quality mentoring by dozens of experienced professionals from complementary backgrounds will also be offered.
THE ESSENTIAL THEMES
The incubated startups will have to develop their innovative lunar solutions mainly in response to three major issues
- Ressources : Identify, quantify and analyze available resources, in particular to produce energy
- Infrastructure : Imagine and build logistical elements and habitat modules to live in total autonomy for a long time
- Health : Ensure the well-being of a crew that will spend several months on the Moon
