  • ISS Internal/External Experimental platform service and here’s why SpaceBD is successful

2. Business Guide and added value

SpaceBD‘s offering covers the ground for a NewSpace startup quite sufficiently.  If one was to look at their ‘other’ service it covers:

3.  Sense of partnership

Whilst not state explicity, when one reads their mission:

‘We provide the perfect opportunity to utilise space that’s catered to our customer’s needs, such as project concept, schedule and cost’, it makes one thing that this is an advisor from cradle to grave, which most possibly gives comfort to most startups.

Their services sums it up:

‘To become a one-stop shop to respond to all issues related to industriali(s)tion of businesses that are developing new technologies.’

4.  Mission

Lowering the barrier to access space is probably one of the top priories needed in NewSpace and SpaceBD is doing exactly that.  SpaceBD is focusing on lower earth orbit and is open to all kinds of services and partnership opportunities.
