Launch Your Business to Success

As opportunities for space-based operations and businesses expand, how you position your company is crucial to its success.

Start-ups, as well as established companies shifting their focus to space and satellites, must strategically navigate securing funding and the transaction process in preparation for an exit, sale, or merger.

Discover how our industry-smart services can help your business focus on what matters most: driving the innovation that makes space accessible and prime for business.

For investors, we can help strengthen ongoing or future acquisitions as well as assist with buy- or sell-side due diligence.

Additionally, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) could have a major impact on aerospace mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity, and businesses that demonstrate early compliance could be better positioned for transactions and to increase value.

Claim Tax Credits for Your Innovation

The level of innovation and research activity across the space industry make it a natural fit for R&D tax credits.

Navigating claims, however, can be a complex process that requires consistent guidance to avoid draining time and resources.

You can pursue R&D credits for eligible field activities if you:

  • Generate prototypes and first articles for testing and validation
  • Develop new materials
  • Design new space monuments and components for customers
  • Develop new or improved advanced space electronics
  • Make improvements to launch vehicle components; propulsion systems; and drones, rovers, or unmanned crafts
  • Design and develop new or improved aircraft monuments and components

Strengthen Business Strategies

As the first to navigate new frontiers, it’s crucial to make strategic business decisions that position your organization for long-term success and to support and maintain space operations while enhancing profits—whether that’s determining correct technologies are in place, developing first-of-a-kind pricing models, assessing valuations for new initiatives, and more. 

Develop strategic business plans that can help your business gain clarity on priorities for improving financial performance, managing growth, motivating personnel, or planning for an orderly transition.

Boost efficiency and revenue by streamlining your company’s organization and processes. Strategic technical and competitive benchmarking, as well as internal and performance audits, can equip you to proactively confront shifting workforce demographics, declining employee engagement, and other obstacles that can hinder businesses.
