Notes from the Chair..

Posted: Nov. 5, 2019

Fall (and Winter) have visited us and we are in the last months of 2019. Colorado has been a shining star on the landscape of Aerospace. It is important to keep our pipeline strong on all fronts and being a support to all companies that make our ecosystem work.

The 2019 Innovation and Opportunity conference will be held in Aurora, Co on November 14 and 15 with a focus on providing assistance and how-to companies of all sizes in obtaining information about federal SBIR and STTR opportunities including organization such as DARPA and the NSF. There will also be opportunities to sit with corporate representatives - and CSBR member companies- from Lockheed Martin, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Raytheon , Ball and BoeingHorizonX. Emerging businesses can learn from the example of Colorado success companies such as Advanced Space. Not to mention a highlight of the Academic partnerships from University of Colorado Boulder.

Not to mention that I am super excited and honored to share the emcee role with NASA’s Art Maples this year! He is the Director of Strategic Partnerships in Colorado and a great part of our Colorado ecosystem. CSBR will be there, so stop by our table at some time during the two days to connect with us.

In December, Colorado Space Business Roundtable will host its biggest event – The CSBR Round Up on Wednesday, December 4th at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. For the last 16 years, we have brought you insights and experts on the state of Aerospace in Colorado. This year will be no different and we highlight Colorado companies that are supporting the forthcoming missions back to the Moon – Artemis, and Mars and beyond. We hope you will join us on December 4th.

Colorado, we are on the move!
