Space commercialization in 2024 and beyond – with the Space Foundation


Episode 55 of the Space Industry podcast is a discussion with Kelli Kedis Ogborn, Vice President of Space Commerce & Entrepreneurship at Space Foundation.

Episode show notes

Kelli is an experienced space industry professional who has worked in both the public and private sectors, so we discussed a wide range of issues and insights from both domains, and how they may affect space companies in 2024 and beyond.

In particular we covered:

  • Trends in how companies are coming to market today compared to previous years
  • How space entrepreneurs can balance hype and optimism
  • How companies outside of our industry should think about their own space strategies, or even becoming a space company
  • The evolving role of space agencies in fostering a dynamic industry
  • The work of the Space Foundation

You can find out more about the Space Foundation here on their website.
