What makes Spacetide successful? Here’s a few points:
As one of the few, if not first platforms where people in Japan can actively engage in NewSpace discussions. Their format includes:
Lounge Talk and
conducting startup pitches
Spacetide attempts to fill the gap of NewSpace awareness and discussion in business. As my research has led me to the question of ‘Where is entrepreneurship in Japan’, I sense that Spacetide is a platform for such discussion on ‘Where is Newspace in Japan’ and having this platform to promote business services and to share ideas, it is an invaluable platform to engage and grow the Newspace sector.
For most of the conversations I have had so far, Spacetide’s name comes up time and time again and this is good proof that they are having an impact in the NewSpace field in Japan. As the conferences are primarily held in Japanese, it is unlikely that those outside of Japan would know much of Spacetide, nevertheless, it does not dimmer their influence, on the contrary, they are well known for their work in NewSpace in Japan.
