“Space 2.0”: Meet the Aussie investor backing local space tech
Martin Duursma is a partner at Main Sequence, the deep-tech VC fund born out of CSIRO, and heads up the space tech portfolio.
To ‘bridge the gap to space’ is one of the challenges Main Sequence is striving to address, and in doing so it has invested in Quasar, Myriota, Advanced Navigation and Gilmour Space, just for starters.
Clearly, Durrsma sees opportunity in Aussie space tech, and he’s putting his money where his mouth is.
In 2021, the commercial space sector is at something of a turning point.
