Shaping German NewSpace Amidst War and a Pandemic (feat. Matthias Wachter, Head of Department at the BDI)

Our hosts Sven & Daniel discuss rising technologies, economic opportunities and social dreams centered around the topics of Innovation & NewSpace with executives, founders and other exciting people from the startup & NewSpace ecosystem.

The podcast’s purpose is to build awareness for this revolutionary era and, from Berlin, Germany, promote Europe’s potential in participating in this next big step.


Matthias heads up the BDI’s Department of International Cooperation, Security Policy, Raw Materials and Space – but the work he does extends far beyond the long title. Matthias speaks about one key effort, the German NewSpace Initiative, which he helped found and continues to manage. Having played a key role in its development, Matthias reveals its core mission and what more needs to be done to support the industry.
