June 20th, 2022
Eight selected start-ups will pitch their companies during the 2022 edition of the World Satellite Business Week, taking place on September 12-16, 2022 in Paris and online worldwide.

Taking place every year in the very heart of Paris and online, the World Satellite Business Week brings together the industry decision-makers from all over the world and from the entire ecosystem. The event is considered by many the place where business leaders can gain market insights, network, conduct business and conclude major deals.
