Progresja Space is a deep-tech startup working on the technologies enabling prosperous space ecosystem. We develop products and services for in-space logistics and satellite mobility.

Our story

Our story begins in 2015 when Tomasz and Przemysław come together at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, Poland. We joined the AGH Space Systems student research group which enabled us to work on numerous space technology projects. In particular, we were interested in designing and testing rockets. We have developed and successfully tested an innovative green bi-propellant thruster, which then become one of the core technology of the company. During our time at AGH University, we had been leading a group of over 50 people working together, winning worldwide competitions, and publishing in scientific journals.

As we were inspired by the space industry since the early 2010s, we have closely watched the birth of the New Space industry, which surfaced as an opportunity to put our ideas into action. Owing to our activity at AGH, we have met Dawid Ślizak, who as a seasoned entrepreneur helped us get started with the company, by becoming an angel investor and supporting us with business expertise as well as a metal additive manufacturing facility for our projects.

Progresja Space has been founded in late 2019, and soon we have gathered ambitious and talented people to join us. Thanks to our bold ideas and innovative thinking we have managed to kick-start the company from scratch, securing funding of €2.5M from the Space3ac accelerator, The National Centre for Research and Development, and contracts for the European Space Agency.
