Marcos Franceschini, Founder & CEO

Marcos Franceschini, a spacecraft engineer turned entrepreneur, currently serves as CEO at Skyloom Global. 25 years ago, Space hooked him when he was exposed to the history of the Apollo program and decided to dedicate his professional career to this industry. He spent the last decade building Telecomm and remote sensing spacecraft and 3 years ago, he realized that there was a lack of infrastructure to transfer large volumes of data from Space to Earth, without which the future of the constellations would be compromised. Then he started his own company, Skyloom, with the main objective of implementing the first commercial spaceborne network relying on lasercomms and geostationary relay satellites to drastically increase bandwidth for low-Earth orbit satellites.
