Investing in the space sector to unleash explosive growth

November 21, 2023

Advent International’s recent investment in Maxar Technologies, a leading provider of geospatial intelligence, demonstrates our growing commitment to the space sector.

In the words of Shonnel Malani, Managing Partner at Advent, this is an industry that has changed in its risk-return profile. Formerly a high-risk sector, which was typically subsidized by governments, space is now an exciting area of growth that private equity can invest credibly and responsibly behind.

Shonnel shared his thoughts in a news-style program produced by ITN Business and launched at the UK Space Conference 2023. The conference brings together UK and international space communities, such as government, industry, and academia, to exchange ideas and discuss plans to succeed in the emerging space age.

The program features key industry and news-style reports along with sponsored editorial profiles. It is hosted by Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, the renowned British space scientist who co-hosts the long-running British astronomy program The Sky at Night. It features broadcaster Sue Saville, who visited Advent’s London office to hear first-hand how our investment in Maxar is developing.
