Deal Flow in Commercial Space 3: Is Luxembourg the Best Investment in Space History?
Luxembourg has a population of 640,000 – about the size of Nashville, Tennessee. Yet for the past 40 years it has been active in the business of Space and in fact has become a powerhouse, attracting investment, spinning innovations and demonstrating the promise as we enter the new era of commercial space.
It has been the home to a leading satellite operator since 1985 and it launched its first commercial satellite as far back as in the last year of the Reagan Administration! In 2008 it implemented a forward-looking space policy and in 2018 inaugurated its own Space Agency.
Luxembourg’s Space Directory is a Who’s Who of the space value chain, demonstrating an ecosystem built for investment, innovation and spiking national GDP. From Red Wire to Spire to EarthLab companies around the world find thriving space culture there.
It is being done by design and through steady, careful planning and a serious commitment “to contributing to the peaceful exploration and sustainable utilization of space resources for the benefit of humankind.”
Why is Luxembourg “the best investment in space history?” What is going on there that you need to know?
