Investing in Space
A volatile economic and geopolitical context is creating a climate of risk-aversion, with knock-on implications for the space industry. As a capital-intensive sector in which it can take years to generate cash flows, let alone revenues, investors must commit to the long-term if they are to see returns. How are traditional investors viewing this new asset class? Can investing in space solve key issues on planet earth? Which terrestrial applications of space have the highest growth potential and how might corporate capital reshape the market? What does the militarisation of space means for public investment, and critically, security?
Following its successful launch in 2022, Investing in Space returns in 2023 to bring together investors, innovators, government and end-users for careful analysis of the opportunities of space. Expertly moderated panel discussion and news-worthy keynotes will encourage nuanced discussions on the transformative opportunities of space, peppered with a healthy dose of realism on the associated risks.
