In this episode, we talk about the rise of Space Marketplaces and how the Satsearch Product Knowledge Graph helps solve problems for marketplace users. We ask, what kind of Acquisition Loops work in the space sector, how does their Experiment Framework look like, and should space marketplaces scale vertically or horizontally? We talk about unit economics, defensibility, and how Satsearch bootstrapped its way forward with the support of the ESA Business Incubation Center.
Our guest is Narayan Prasad, co-founder, and COO of Satsearch, a global marketplace for the space industry, incubated by the European Space Agency. Narayan is a multiple degrees academic in space-related sciences, a vivid member of the Indian space community - an Indian in Germany living space entrepreneur.
