“I promised you, Sven,” said our co-host Daniel, after Sven pointed out how much he enjoyed James’ ideas. “…I could talk to James for hours.”
James’ unwavering passion for satellite imaging, and his company Skywatch, is almost tangible. Originally a side project allowing astrophysicists to access data from NASA observatories in near real-time, Skywatch catapulted James into the industry after garnering investor and media interest in 2014. Now a business with over 800 customers globally, Skywatch, through James’ leadership, is a company worth admiring in the new space sector.
