Acceleration Program "Business Runway"

Within the BusinessRunway acceleration program the Technology Centre CAS supports start-up innovative companies in the capital city of Prague. The companies have access to the premises in the TC CAS building with full technical facilities (equipped offices, IT infrastructure, office supplies, conference centre facilities, etc.) and management services.

The first incubated company was Space Systems Czech (today Huld), a sister company of Space Systems Finland, engaged in software development in critical applications (space applications, automotive and aerospace, healthcare, etc.). Participation in the acceleration program enabled the company to grow from zero to fifteen employees in four years and increase its annual turnover to almost 900,000 EUR. "During the program I especially appreciate that the company was able to use a well-prepared background and thus start operating within a few days. The biggest benefit for us was the opportunity to be based in the TC CAS building in Prague and benefit from the knowledge of the experienced team. The number of professional seminars we had the opportunity to participate in enabled the continuous development of employees and the gathering of important contacts," says Daniel Štefl, co-founder and director of Space Systems Czech, about participating in the program.

Stratosyst s.r.o. remains in the program. This Czech company develops HAPS (High-Altitude Pseudo-Satellite) technology for use in astronomical space observation.
