Guest: Guillermo Söhnlein
Guest: Guillermo Sohnlein returned for this Space Show program to discuss the International Association of Space Entrepreneurs (IASE) and the Space Angels Network. Check both out at and We talked about early stage finance, the NewSpace readiness for investment, due diligence and investment, leading entrepreneurial space areas of interest, the history of the IASE, if entrepreneurs are born or made, and much more. One of the additional areas explored was the comparison of space entrepreneurism between Europe and the United States, including differences between cultures. One listener asked about a start-up for lunar tourism, which led to a discussion about funding a series of enabling technology business ventures that might someday support and lead to a lunar tourism company. You will not want to miss this discussion. This was a hard hitting business and entrepreneurial discussion about early commercial space development. Consider joining IASE and being part of some of their groups, some of which we described on air. You can contact Mr. Sohnlein with your comments and questions at
