Our next DC chapter event is addressing all the questions you have or should have about the growth of an up-and-coming market.

The space sector in North America active is accelerating as key players acquire new technologies to support the growing need for military and civilian capabilities in space. This momentum has also catalyzed space startups in the private sector which, in time, will offer more M&A opportunities to the market.

Fueling some of this growth is the expanded funding from the U.S. government and its space related agencies for commercial and defense applications in space.

Our multidisciplinary, expert panel will address the current state of transactions in this vibrant and growing sector. During this event, you will learn more about:

  • Recent transaction volumes and valuations for acquisitions, as well as private and public investment in the space sector
  • Key space related technologies and capabilities that strategic and financial buyers are looking for
  • The role the U.S. government will play in the expansion of the commercial and defense space industry sectors
  • Key federal budget priorities

Our expert panel includes:

  • Tess Oxenstierna, Managing Director, Capstone
  • Carol Zanmiller, Founder and CEO, Cosmic Advanced Engineering Solutions (sold to Kratos)
  • Mark Spoto, Managing Partner, Razor’s Edge Ventures

The panel will be moderated by Scott Meza, Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig LLP.

Members: FREE || Non-Members: $25

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
