Space4Impact will create an international ecosystem of governmental and non-governmental organisations, investors, entrepreneurs & corporates. The goal is to maximize the positive impact that space technologies, infrastructures and data can bring to the planet for a sustainable future.
Through the PROMOTE and the CONNECT activities the organization raises awareness on how space technologies, data and infrastructure can provide positive societal/ environmental impact at a national and international level. It will also build bridges between the stakeholders of the Space4Impact ecosystem, and help New Space companies to identify, enter, and grow new markets.

The organization will promote NewSpace companies solutions to help achieve the UN SDGs, organize startup competitions, and organize events to bring policy makers, investors, entrepreneurs & customers together.
Space4Impact answers international corporations needs with specific space technologies to drive the space sector worldwide, by running pilot projects linking NewSpace companies with non-space industrial verticals, attracting capital to the NewSpace field.
