SGAC – LSA SpaceGen Entrepreneurs

Wednesday 23 October 2019, 09:40 – 10:40
Location: The Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Grand Ballroom C

The SpaceGen Entrepreneurs held for the first time during IAC 2017 in Adelaide, Australia, is an event organised by the Space Generation Advisory Council designed to connect entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs with startup veterans and venture capitalists, investors, business angels and business incubators. This year, SGAC proposes a joint GNF with Luxembourg Space Agency focused on the concept of space commercialization. Luxembourg has a dynamic and growing space sector, with more than 50 private, public and academic players. In the context of its unique framework for the exploration and commercial utilization of resources in space and the SpaceResources.lu initiative, about 20 space companies have established a presence in Luxembourg in the last 3 years. Technological progress, cheaper access to space and interest from investors is expected to fuel the growth of the industry in the near future. The SpaceGen Entrepreneurs will feature high-calibre entrepreneurs, business investors and startup experts that will analyse how to capitalize new commercial opportunities in the space industry, discuss the most effective ways to succeed in startup ventures and share the human story behind space entrepreneurs.
