Space Foundation Welcomes Three New Corporate Members

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation receives support from a wide range of Corporate Members, who make it possible for us to successfully deliver programs that advance space-related endeavors. In return, our Corporate Members receive recognition, marketing, business development and networking opportunities, reports on important space issues and opportunities for deep involvement in the annual National Space Symposium.

Our Corporate Members include commercial and entrepreneurial space ventures, satellite and telecommunications companies and a select few from non-aerospace sectors working on space-enabled or space-themed projects, including companies that produce and market Certified Space Technologies.

We also have partnerships with local, state, national and international economic development organizations and educational institutions that view the space industry as a part of their current constituencies or as one of their target sectors.

We offer five Corporate Membership levels each with different membership fees and corresponding levels of benefits and opportunities:
