Astroscale announced on October 6 that it has been selected for the "J-Startup Impact" program, a nurturing initiative for impact startups established by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in July 2023.

Impact startups are positioned as companies that aim to solve social and environmental issues, realize new visions, and achieve sustainable economic growth. The "J-Startup Impact" program was launched based on the "J-Startup" program, which METI has been promoting to provide concentrated support to startups in collaboration with the private sector. This time, Astroscale, along with 29 other companies, has been selected as a role model with high potential.

Hideki Kato, the CEO of Astroscale, commented on the selection, "Astroscale is an impact startup aiming to realize space sustainability (Space Sustainability) through orbital services, including debris removal. As a leading company in orbital services, we want to accelerate our development to make our services commonplace by 2030."
