Bring space data down to Earth 
and make successful business

Come join us create links between new and emerging business sectors. We need your help to become fully operational and to build a commercially successful ecosystem were your business can contribute and benefit.

Satellites generate enormous amount of data, often free of charge, that is used on Earth for the benefit of society in local and global economies. This enables business opportunities for smaller players outside the traditional space sector.

Business is made within all kind of areas: communication, navigation, positioning, transportation, energy, environment, safety, natural resources, aviation, finance, investments, insurance, food, agriculture, health, infrastructure, smart cities and maritime, just to mention some.
