The Entrepreneurs and Financiers of Europe’s New Wave of Satellite Start-ups
Last year, SATELLITE 2015 explored Silicon Valley’s new role in building the NewSpace movement through financial investments. This year, we take a look East into the European landscape of alternative financing and startups. In Europe, the interplay of startups and the satellite establishment is still in its infancy. However, the power of crowdfunding and hybrid models such as FinTech has started to complement “classical” financing models for new space related ventures. This session brings Europe’s own start-up scene together for a discussion between innovators and new investors.
