The "New Space" market worth billions - How startups are revolutionizing space flight 50 years after the moon landing

Maria Birlem

Co-Founder and CEO, yuri GmbH

Date: 15. June 2021
Starting: 19:00 h CET

The online-seminar will be performed in English.

Space travel is on the verge of a new era. After the somewhat dusty image of the last few decades - predominantly characterized by basic research - the mood is once again one of optimism. Elon Musk is well on his way to colonizing Mars. Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson will soon be offering tourist flights into space. But it's not just billionaires who are getting in on the action, but above all many young startups. They are developing inexpensive and environmentally friendly rockets, launching thousands of satellites into orbit equipped with smartphone electronics, and in the near future printing human organs in a state of weightlessness. Investors have also long since discovered "New Space" as a new billion-dollar market: venture capital for it has increased more than tenfold since 2009. Maria Birlem is the founder of one of these startups, which is not based in Silicon Valley, but here in Germany on Lake Constance. With yuri GmbH, she and her co-founders enable research in zero gravity for all industries.
During this presentation, Maria will take the audience on an inspiring journey that takes place not in a distant future, but here and now. Space travel is no longer an expensive niche topic for governments, but a thriving commercial market with great disruptive potential.

Maria Birlem is co-founder and managing director of yuri, a new space startup from Lake Constance that aims to make research and production in a state of weightlessness accessible to all. After studying astronautics in Aachen and working for years at Airbus in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance, she even wanted to become the first German astronaut with Claudia Kessler.
