NewSpaceVision Podcast #4 with Pekka Laurila CFO & Co-Founder of ICEYE
What a start into 2018. ICEYE, the VC backed NewSpace StartUp from Finnland, just launched their next generation radar satellite on a PSLV into earth’s orbit. With their novel SAR technology, they want to change the earth observation market and are off for a good start. In November 2017 we had the chance to speak to Pekka Laurila, the Co-Founder and CFO of the company, about their business, technology and how they started. He also answers the question why they had to rent an icebreaker in the early days of their company!
