We believe Space can do more for Earth

Space4Impact wants to maximize the positive impact of space technologies by linking New Space startups to new markets in line with the UN SDGs worldwide.

The New Space sector is a fast-growing market, boosting the historical institutional Space exploration programs into commercial applications. The roughly $366 billion global space industry (2019) is estimated to surge to over $1 trillion by 2040. At the same time, Space applications, such as Earth Observation and geolocation, increasingly play a key role when it comes to monitor, understand and tackle global challenges, such as climate change and resource management.
