We are at the dawn of a new entrepreneurial era as space is being opened up, allowing all of us to reach for the stars.
Providing a platform for research and exploration, space is critical for the advancement of humankind where space technology is a key driver for innovation. Over the years space tech has provided spin-off technologies which find application in everyday life and thus impact the common livelihood of mankind. Furthermore, the space industry is a catalyst for the development of communities, creating thousands of jobs and attracting talent, boosting local economies. It is also a symbol of what is possible, inspiring an innovative and independent high-tech knowledge society.
