According to SpaceTech Partners, NewSpace is:

`.. the emergence of the private spaceflight industry. New space ventures are increasingly created, such as private launch companies, small satellite constellations, or sub-orbital tourism, as well as more specific efforts to reinvent the traditional space industry supply chain.`


For the purposes of simplifying and not complicating the definition, I would say : NewSpace is non-traditional space players making and/or engaging in activities that make space flight, space applications or space activities faster and cheaper.
