Catalysing a Space Industry in your Region

Learn about space related growth market opportunities and assess your city or region's strengths and needs to participate in the space industry.

What's it all about?

The current global space ecosystem is developing rapidly due to accelerating technologies that have democratized access to space. Space technologies today are cheaper, faster and off the shelf but only a fraction of the world leverages and participates in the current $360B+ global space industry. There is a need for capacity building as well as retraining in New Zealand to participate in this growing economy. Engaging stakeholders and support systems within a city or or region will further accelerate capacity and ecosystem building in areas that do not have established space stakeholders and support structures to catalyze growth. 

This workshop will go through the initial process of understanding actionable initiatives for catalyzing a city or region in accordance with their own local strengths and needs.

Participants will:

●  Learn about trends and market opportunities in the New Space Industry 

●  Know how to assess national and local space market and capabilities 

●  Identify their own needs and requirements for growing a space industry in their region

●  Identify actionable next steps

This workshop is limited to 20 participants and is geared towards local government representatives, adjacent industry decision makers, and interested space investors.
