Launched by CNES (French government space agency) in 2014 and supported by ESA since 2016, ActInSpace aims at fostering entrepreneurship, especially among young people. Midway between a start-up weekend and a hackathon, ActInSpace enables teams with different profiles throughout the world to take up, in just 24 hours, one of the challenges set up by CNES, ESA and their partners. Since the 1st edition of ActInSpace®, 35 start-ups have been created in the different host countries. One of the distinguishing features in this competition is the fact that the challenges are based on CNES or ESA patents or based on data supplied by the partners of the event (Airbus, GSA, Copernicus…). During the ActInSpace hackathon, space and business experts are present to advise and support the competitors.

For the 2020 edition, the objective is to show that everybody can take part into the business of space downstream application. This is true, in particular for non-space engineers, youth coming from emerging countries or a woman.

New partnership has been set up by CNES with UNOOSA, SGAC and AASO for instance to help in expanding and promoting the event in Africa, Asia and to the youth & women.

Those new comers in addition of the contribution of the historical sponsors and partners such as ESA, Airbus, CLS, EBAN, GSA, enables advanced projection for the 2020 edition to reach about 53 organizing countries all over other the world and 5000 potential participants.

The International finals will take place during the Meett in Space as well as the award ceremony.

Our Giant Leap presents a new SGAC initiative that aims at reinforcing the aerospace sector by embracing gender equality and diversity for the full palette of opportunity and ingenuity that they offer.  The initiative is built on three pillars: inspiration, education, and community. Together with young professionals and students passionate about aerospace, we find new ways to inspire young women to choose the path of science, technology, engineering, and research; we raise awareness about discrimination related problems and find solutions to such problems; we bring people together to tackle concrete concerns raised by the women and men of aerospace, and we break stereotypes. Every day we enrich aerospace by advocating for diversity and inclusion.
 
We aim to spread our vision across SGAC nations so they can host similar events in many countries and we will be ready to assist them worldwide.
