Investments, Growth and Profitability in Space

The space business is at a crossroads.

Historical markets are declining while innovation has never been so prolific.

Its rejuvenation will stem from corporates, start-ups and investments funds to cooperate as one single ecosystem.

Why "Jansky"?

The jansky is a unit of spectral flux density used in radio astronomy.

The unit is named after pioneering US radio astronomer Karl Guthe Jansky.

Jansky Partners humbly refers to this heritage, to point out new sources of energy in space business!
