what is astra?
ASTRA is Israel’s first early-stage accelerator program focused primarily on space technologies. The program is designed to support mature research projects, pre-seed and seed startups, in order to consolidate a pool of experienced actors that will thrust Israel into the Space Age.
The accelerator has two main objectives: to support space tech projects throughout their life cycle with the help of dedicated support and training; and participate in the structuring and bringing together of the local space ecosystem in order to consolidate a pool of projects capable of participating in future Israeli aerospace that increases the number of space tech projects and startups created in Israel.
Starburst, Israel Aerospace Industries and Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art are pooling their respective skills and ecosystems within a consortium to offer an innovative and unique program. Anchored in the Tel Aviv/ Ramat Gan area, the ASTRA Spacetech accelerator will be focused on supporting spacetech and enabling technology startups with space applications.
