NewSpace 2016 Conference

Were you at the NewSpace 2016 Conference recently in Seattle?

CTS International attended it, and left the conference very excited about the innovation and technology surrounding space exploration, and the related business opportunities.

The greater Seattle area is rapidly becoming a hub to the new space industry. Companies in the area include Spaceflight Industries, Blue Origin, Vulcan Aerospace, Planetary Resources, and Aerojet Rocketdyne. We expect many more to join the list over the next 18-24 months.

Companies in various stages of growth, ranging from startup through Series A, B, and C financed companies to self-sustaining enterprises have become attractive to investors.

As the industry evolves, we expect technology and the skills needed to implement new ideas to constantly evolve, too. Right now the space industry is booming with job opportunities. Young engineers as well as seasoned professionals in demand. Beyond engineering, there are opportunities in computer science, business development, investment, finance and more.
