Spaceoneers caught up with Ran Qedar, following his developments since the first Startup Weekend Space in Bremen where he led his “team USB-I” to first place.USB-I came up with an innovative concept in the design of a universal adapter to connect a vast number of payloads with every type of satellite bus system. From the judges’ point of view at Startup Weekend Space, the team presented a strong product and a scalable business model. They won support in writing their business proposal and formation of their company, they later called Space Products and Innovation (SPiN).Ran is now CEO of SPiN, which brings “plug and play” technology into space, reducing cost and time of satellite manufacturing through spinning in available technology and concepts, and increasing profit margins in the industry by enabling standard processes.As an emerging space startup, Spaceoneers asked Ran about the challenges his team has faced over the past couple of years and how they went about taking their concept to create a fully-fledged company.
