About Us

Collectively SCM brings over 30 years of experience to the commercialization of space and is focused on helping public and
private clients to innovate, commercialize and capitalize on their activities in LEO and beyond. Led by Cynthia Bouthot, a
pioneer in LEO Demand Creation and a thought leader in the creation of a scalable LEO marketplace. Cynthia founded SCM to
finally realize the promise of connecting terrestrial markets to space supply. Cynthia was a founding member of CASIS at the ISS
National Lab, where she established and developed the demand model for private sector entities, focused on utilization and
value creation.

For the past five years, SCM has been engaged with many Space Agencies, CLDs, New Transportation providers, and implementation partners. During that time we developed a deep knowledge of both the supply and demand sides and how to create value propositions.

Cynthia Bouthot

Founder and CEO

Cynthia Bouthot is a pioneer in low earth orbit demand creation and a thought leader in the creation of a scalable LEO marketplace. Cynthia founded SCM to finally realize the promise of connecting terrestrial markets to in-space supply. Cynthia and her SCM team have demonstrated that the demand side of space has a total addressable market value of $885b and now work with many different organizations to tap into this massive potential.

Cynthia was a founding member of CASIS, the manager of the international space station national lab (ISSNL) where she established and developed the demand model for private sector entities, focused on utilization and value creation, which ultimately led to more than half of the research on board the ISSNL being conducted by commercial businesses. Many of these were iconic fortune 500 companies that have generated over $160m in direct funding, and an additional $34m of third party-funded sponsored programs.

Cynthia spent nine years working in innovation and new market creation throughout Europe and led innovation and R&D for the whole of the UK and US, with a special focus on space and life sciences. Cynthia has broad experience in both the public and private sectors. She directed management systems for the ma port authority and headed up the states trade office in London. While in the private sector, Cynthia spent a large part of her career leading change initiatives and implementing challenging technology programs. Cynthia was global lead of business readiness for EMC’s ERP implementation, and as director of industry consulting at benchmarking partners, she worked with a range of public and private clients on technology change initiatives.

Cynthia regularly speaks to audiences and moderates panels on innovation, commercialization, and entrepreneurship. She has many professional affiliations including being on the board of directors for both mass challenge and mass ventures - an appointment from Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker. Cynthia began her career with Honeywell bull in finance and auditing. She holds a b. S. (magna cum laude) from Boston College’s Carroll School of Management with a major in Finance and a master’s degree in International Economics and Finance from Brandeis University.
