How Satellite Startups are Capturing New Verticals

Wed. March 14| 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM | 207B

Over the past few years, venture capitalists, STEM education programs, and media fascination with space have helped thrust open a massive window for entrepreneurs and their commercial aerospace startups. The very first wave of those companies from the "New Space" movement are now solidifying their business models and signing their first major customer contracts. While some of the larger contracts are with government customers, this session will focus on opportunities for new entrants in consumer markets, such as healthcare, entertainment and travel. Speakers will include both companies that are targeting these markets as well as customers from new markets that believe satellites can help them evolve and grow in the future.
