Space Micro Inc and Veridiam, Inc. announce the formation of an Executive-Level forum focusing on the Space Systems market segment.   The San Diego Space Systems Suppliers Executive Forum will provide a framework for executives in the San Diego Area to exchange market information, cooperate on new opportunities, encourage innovation, and outline the future talent requirements to support this rapidly expanding market segment.

“This unprecedented expansion of the Space Systems Market is illustrating where gaps exist in the current Supply Chain”, says Brian Joyal, CEO of Veridiam. “This forum will allow the executives of participating companies to exchange ideas on how to close these gaps.”

“San Diego has a robust and growing space industry, including government, satellite providers, ground systems, major subsystems and components,” states David Strobel, CEO of Space Micro. “This executive forum can initiate cooperation and synergy to attract additional opportunities and encourage growth for local industry.”

Joyal and Strobel plan to have the first face-to-face forum meeting in June of this year at Veridiam’s Oceanside facility.   Initially, the forum will meet on a monthly basis.  Space Micro and Veridiam have agreed to host the meetings on alternating months.

To facilitate participation in the forum, a LinkedIn group launches on April 1st with initial invitations to the forum being extended on that day.  If interested in joining the forum, from your LinkedIn profile, please search “San Diego Space Systems Suppliers Executive Forum” in LinkedIn Groups and submit your request.
