Space is becoming a consumer-driven and high-volume industry, opening up exciting new business opportunities.
Space answers more and more consumer needs. This exponentially growing demand for space-based solutions such as on-demand and real-time Earth observation, global seamless broadband and IoT or new products dedicated to positioning & navigation make space a highly relevant domain of disruption. The global Space industry is strongly stimulated through high levels of private funding (firstly driven by SpaceX in the 2000s) with more than $5.8B invested in startups in 2019. As mentioned in the last market study by Morgan Stanley, global Space market is expected to grow from $350B today up to more than $1000B in the next 20 years.
In this context, CNES has decided to launch a Venture Capital fund dedicated to space and selected Karista to manage it.
