About the Keystone Space Collaborative:

The Keystone Space Collaborative (the “Collaborative”) is a new nonprofit organization comprising of  regional stakeholders representing industry, academia, economic  development and government with a mission to serve as the Tri-State  Region’s (PA, WV, OH) aerospace economic development organization,  committed to attracting and expanding the next generation of space  industry businesses in the region. The Collaborative seeks to establish a  formal network and infrastructure across the region to support and grow  the rapidly emerging commercial space sector. The region’s  technological and research and manufacturing strengths are directly  applicable to the strategic development of this sector, and the  Collaborative seeks to leverage these strengths to become a key  research, development and manufacturing hub for the commercial space  industry. There are initial signs of this growth, and the Collaborative  will be the centralizing, leading organization in the region to attract  and accelerate aerospace business activities, support growing  space-based start-ups, develop opportunities for space research at local  schools and universities, keep high-level talent within the region, and  support overall space-related job growth in the region.

The  Collaborative will accomplishes these successes through curated and open  programming by and for the audiences we serve, broken down by the  following focus areas:

  • Industry: The Industry Program  supports organizations engaged in or interested in developing  space-related research or technology in the region.
  • Innovation:  The Space Entrepreneurship Program will support entrepreneurs and  startups through business development, investor pitches, and other  support to grow the commercial space sector.
  • Ecosystem: The  Ecosystem Program, supported by and giving visibility to our ecosystem  map and matchmaking efforts, is designed to promote and enable the  region’s growing commercial space sector collaborations.
  • Education:  The Education Program and events drive awareness of industry  opportunities and facilitate regional opportunities for students.
  • Research:  The Research Program facilitates and promotes space-sector research  opportunities, including collaboration between academia and industry.
