Colorado Space Coalition

To advance leadership opportunities and business advocacy in four of the region's largest growth industries, the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation leads four industry-focused affiliates.

Colorado Space Coalition

The Colorado Space Coalition (CSC) is a group of industry stakeholders working to make Colorado a center of excellence for aerospace. CSC members – including space companies, military leaders, academic organizations, research centers, and economic development groups – promote Colorado’s significant space assets as well as advancing legislation vital to industry growth and success.

The CSC is an industry affiliate of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation. The Colorado Economic Development Commission is a major financial contributor to the CSC's marketing initiatives.

CSC members span the entire state, representing diverse backgrounds, but united goals.

If you're interested in joining the CSC to promote and expand Colorado's aerospace industry, email us for membership information or call 303.620.8133.
