The University of South Australia’s Innovation & Collaboration Centre (ICC) has opened applications for its 2022 Venture Catalyst Space program.

The program, now in its fourth year, forms part of the state government’s $4 million Space Innovation Fund, which aims to help grow the space industry in South Australia.

Space start-ups are supported via a program of tailored support, mentoring and access to resources at the University of South Australia.

So far, the Venture Catalyst Space program has assisted companies from Australia, Canada, India and the United States.

The firms received funding, workshops, mentoring and introductions to key Australian space industry contacts, as well as a world-class workspace with access to the resources of the University of South Australia.

“Since launching the program we have supported 19 companies to build, test and iterate their minimum viable product, raise funds and develop partnerships with both research and industry across Australia and abroad,” said Associate Director of the ICC, Jasmine Vreugdenburg.

“Our latest cohort of companies has gained global media attention, connected with leading industry organisations including NASA and the Australia Space Agency and have rapidly integrated into the space community and industry”.

Applications for the 2021 intake will close on 28 November 2021. The program will run from January to July 2022.
