Space

Have you made your mark?

The heavens, once controlled by governments, are now open to entrepreneurs.

Private companies are launching flocks of small satellites into Low Earth Orbit, creating an 1,100-mile computing layer around the planet. It’s transforming the lives of students, farmers, planners, doctors, patients, businesses, humanitarians, and government officials.

Other visionaries aspire to mine asteroids, service the International Space Station, and clean up deadly space junk. Internet-age tycoons offer zero-gravity thrill rides, settlements on Mars and … well, a lot more.

Nobody is waiting for NASA. And no one is ruling anything out.

Small companies with big ideas will spring from obscurity. Some, however, will sink into oblivion. Even the best companies will falter unless their story inspires.

That’s why we’re here.

Get Down to Earth

Brodeur Partners Space Entrepreneur Survey data has been published in USA Today. The data was derived from a survey of 615 American adults. You can find more about the survey data here.

Brodeur Partners announced the Brodeur Space Group, a practice dedicated to helping clients seize opportunities beyond our planet.

The NewSpace economy is here as emerging companies develop satellites, organize space tours in space, plan to mine asteroids, and imagine cities on Mars. These developments are gathering momentum as the federal government actively supports the private space push, and household-name consumer companies reimagine the possibilities of life and commerce in space.
