Influencing the Growth of the Aerospace Industry

Who We Are

The legends of the Roundtable date back centuries. Guided by a vision to bring together thought leaders around a table with no head chair. Every voice equal and inclusive, united in leadership. The Colorado Space Business Roundtable (CSBR) brings together aerospace stakeholders from industry, government, and academia for roundtable discussions. Our organization is united by a common desire to advance the growth of Colorado aerospace. Together we embody the voice of Colorado aerospace from startups to government and academic stakeholders….. we strive to be a collective voice for the aerospace industry.

The Colorado Space Business Roundtable was established to:

  • Promote the growth of space and space-related industry in Colorado for existing and entrepreneurial businesses and activities;
  • Function as a business organization, develop and strengthen relationships among all members of the Colorado high technology community;
  • To serve as a forum for the presentation and exchange of vital business-building information;
  • Support educational initiatives designed to satisfy Colorado high tech employment needs;
  • Help attract more space related businesses to Colorado, act as and facilitate the growth of said organizations and if needed offer CSBR as a tool for the success of that organization;
  • The organization will also sponsor programs and seminars on subjects relating to the forgoing.

CSBR is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization committed to the growth of space-related industries in Colorado, the nation’s largest per-capita aerospace economy with over 33,000 direct employees and nearly 300 companies.

The CSBR board is made up of some of the most influential leaders in Colorado.
