Space-Edge Accelerator


The global space economy is projected to surpass $1 trillion by 2040, ushering in a new wave of opportunities in commerce and careers. Space-Edge connects businesses to experts and resources that will help them develop and activate effective space strategies.


Space-Edge is a collaboration between Arizona State University, Space Foundation, University of Central Florida, University of Florida, and Vanderbilt University.

The inaugural Space-Edge accelerator offered in Fall 2024 will focus on biomedical innovations that can benefit from the space environment or help grow the space sector. 

The 12-week hybrid program is designed for biomedical innovators and businesses who are interested in accessing the unique space environment for R&D and manufacturing and/or developing novel biomedical solutions for the space environment. Whether you are a researcher, entrepreneur, early-stage venture, or established business, this program will support you in developing an actionable space strategy.
