Peter Platzer knew he wanted to take his company public.

The CEO of Spire Global had spent the better part of a decade getting his satellite observation startup up and running. By 2019, Spire’s network of orbiting monitors was scanning the Earth dozens of times a day, culling terabytes of data to plug into its proprietary analytics tools. And customers across the private and public sectors were using those tools to plumb new insights about the way the world works, tracking everything from shifting wildfires to sustainable fisheries.

Spire Global CEO Peter Platzer says the ability to partner with experienced industry executives is what drove him to pursue a SPAC deal.
