In this exciting time of space exploration and advancements in technology, Maxar Technologies is pleased to once again sponsor and mentor this years’ Techstars Starburst Space Accelerator program, which promotes and encourages the next generation of space start-ups. This second class offers unique propositions for transforming the space industry:

The Techstars Starburst Space Accelerator runs from June 8, 2020 through September 9, 2020. Maxar, in partnership with the U.S. Air Force, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, SAIC, Lockheed Martin, Israel Aerospace Industries North America and The Aerospace Corporation, will spend the summer mentoring and coaching this new crop of entrepreneurs to help them refine their core technology, business models and go-to-market strategies. Maxar team members who are serving as mentors have expertise in aerospace engineering, operations, marketing and business development. Mentors will focus on technical evaluation of data and products and, when possible, explore opportunities for joint customer demonstrations and development of bundled solutions.

As mentors and as space enthusiasts ourselves, we expect to learn as much from this year’s entrepreneurs as they will learn from us. Maxar will do our part to encourage and support our fellow explorers.
