Space Tango, a Kentucky-based business accelerator, is accepting proposals for its startup funding and support program.

In its initial round, Space Tango will accept up to six companies, which do not need to be based in Kentucky at the present time. Each selected company will receive up to $20,000 in funding. Selected companies will also participate in a 12-week onsite program that will provide access to services, advisors, and networks to help start and grow an entrepreneurial space business.

Space Tango is seeking companies with business ideas that involve small satellites and space platforms, the International Space Station, biotechnology, exomedicine, novel materials, energy, education, game design and development, and areas not yet contemplated.

Interested companies can contact Kris Kimel or Rick Johnson at Space Tango.
