Creating an ecosystem for commercial services and products to thrive.

We support the emergence of the new economic market in LEO and Lunar Orbit by intensifying collaboration with markets, facilitating the engagement of new actors and stimulating demand in an effort to develop new products and services based on commercially-viable business models.

Make use of exploration infrastructure to offer unique commercial services and enable the development of new products for use on Earth and in Space.

  • Gather the technical or business know-how required to deliver the end-to-end project
  • Prepare sales- and marketing activities necessary to sell their product(s)
  • Focus on commercial viability and customer-oriented design
  • Find the right partners to complement their team
