Message from Carissa Christensen of The Tauri Group
The Tauri Group, an innovator in analytic consulting, is the leading market analysis firm serving space industry clients. Tauri’s Space and Technology practice supports civil, commercial, and military enterprises. The team brings preeminent expertise in the space industry and its underlying technologies, and is known for a rigorous and multi-disciplinary approach to analysis of launch, satellite, space technology, and emerging markets.
The Tauri Group engages in non-advocacy analysis activities, and operates on a non-contingent basis. Our relationship with BOOSTER is consistent with these principles of offering unbiased, trustworthy analysis.
Our task is to chaperone BOOSTER in ongoing marketing and pre-sales systems integration with responsiveness to changes in external market conditions and BOOSTER business activities.
Commercial spaceflight, and especially sub-orbital spaceflight, is a dynamic industry, where approaches and strategies should also be prepared to evolve and respond to evolving markets and marketing opportunities. The Tauri Group will provide market assessment in early planning and during the development phases. As BOOSTER develops and marketing support needs diversify, Tauri will also help to characterize and address future needs for analysis and for marketing support. Serving this systems integration role will ensure consistent and evolutionary growth in BOOSTER’s understanding of, and communications with, target market sets.
Additionally, we will provide analyses of investment organizations with the capacity and domain focus to consider BOOSTER as a viable investment opportunity at different stages of its development.
