The article is published in New Space: The Journal of Space Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. Click here to read the full-text article free on the New Space website through October 21, 2018.
Entitled "Developing Innovative Business Models for Small Space Programs Spin-Outs, 'Dit Space' Start-Up Experience in Costa Rica," the article is coauthored by Mr. Luis Monge, Universidad Nacional Costa Rica and Mr. Roberto Aguilar, Central American Association of Aeronautics and Space (ACAE).

The goal of DIT Space is to commercialize satellite images, creating competitive advantages based on technology transfer and the use of existing technology.
"While space entrepreneurship has been led mostly by individuals and companies in the U.S., it is very gratifying to see the interest expand worldwide," says Scott Hubbard, Editor-in-Chief of New Space.
