Satellite Finance Forum
Often, we welcome change and innovation as a step forward in our business, but questions arise in how disruptors such as high throughput satellites, all-electric technology, smallsats, and innovative ground segment technologies will change the industry. What does the market expect or demand in terms of a cash-flow ramp to make investments in these technologies a reality? How has the fundraising process changed in the past decade or two? Industry executives, investors, and bankers will debate the impact of these disruptive technologies, where innovation is establishing gaps in the value chain, how those might give rise to new industry structures possibly with new ventures, and more importantly, how this all may affect financing requirements, particularly for angel investors or venture capital.
