Our Story

Audacy was launched in 2015 by a team of Stanford graduates, NASA award winners, and SpaceX veterans. The company was formed around a simple idea: to deliver anytime, effortless space connectivity that advances humanity to a new age of space commerce, exploration, and discovery. Audacy began as a student project in Stanford's "Startup Garage" with co-founders Ralph Ewig from the Graduate School of Business, and James Spicer and Sam Avery from the MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics. The team went on to win the Stanford BASES startup challenge, beating out over 200 other companies for the grand $150k prize, before formally establishing the company in March 2015.

Since our beginnings as a student project, Audacy has secured funding from 8 investors across Europe, Asia, the United States, and South America. Audacy has a clearly defined roadmap to success, outlined in 5 core phases to reach service launch, with a sixth phase for growth thereafter. Each phase has a projected deadline and associated milestones. Audacy has completed our first 2 phases in this plan on time and under budget, achieving all milestone goals to date.

 
Our mission is to deliver anytime and effortless space connectivity that advances humankind to a new age of commerce, exploration, and discovery.
