Episode 19: Operation Orbit: What’s Fueling Launcher’s Race to Space?

In 2017, a small startup company called Launcher embarked on a 10-year mission to reach orbit (and revenue) by the year 2027. So, five years on, how are they doing?

While most development projects typically take longer than the original plan, Launcher is in a unique position—they are five years ahead of schedule! In fact, they have a mission planned for October 2022.

How was this possible? With the right products, the right manufacturing platform, and the right partners Launcher is accelerating its business into orbit.

During this 3Din30, we are joined by Launcher CEO Max Haot and Head of Manufacturing Tim Berry to discuss the key decisions that have helped fuel Launcher’s race to space.
