Prime Lightworks Inc. manufactures electric propulsion systems for space satellites. Our goal is to engineer new possibilities in space while drastically reducing cost and waste, by replacing propellant systems with radio frequency resonant cavity thrusters. Our satellite propulsion technology has no fuel dependence, which will lower the carbon footprint of the satellite industry by drastically reducing A) fuel consumption by satellites on orbit, and B) fuel consumption by launch vehicles during orbital insertion due to reduced satellite fuel mass. Direct conversion of electricity into thrust has innumerable potential applications on Earth as well as in space. Our biggest possible vision for the company is for our technology to become a useful actuation mechanism across transportation, hardware, and manufacturing, which in turn could support further software, data, and communications markets—the engine of the 21st century....

I am very excited by what Prime Lightworks is doing. Very few companies have the potential to revolutionize spaceflight while also changing our understanding of the laws of physics at the same time. As one of the first investors in Prime Lightworks, I have watched Kyle and the team make careful and meticulous progress over the past few years and look forward to continued great execution.

I was a mentor at the Cleantech Open program where Prime Lightworks was one of the finalists. The company was lightyears ahead of most of the other companies in the program. Once they prove the technology works and finalize the design, they will quickly entirely replace the existing propellant-based thrusters.

Emily Reichert Advisor at Prime Lightworks Inc.

Prime Lightworks is committed to eliminating fuel emissions from space propulsion. Since joining Greentown Labs, they have demonstrated consistent growth from initial conception to prototype and customer development. I believe their fully electric propulsion technology has the potential to enable renewable and sustainable space transportation throughout our solar system and beyond.

Ben Lynett

We invested in Prime Lightworks in 2016 and we continue to be strong believers in the team and their mission to commercialize electric propulsion technology in space. The team has made significant progress on the technology since our initial investment. Additionally, Kyle is a remarkable entrepreneur and operator.

We are more confident than ever that this is the right team to make electric propulsion a reality. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Prime Lightworks during the years ahead.

Kyle and his team not only see the future but are building the mechanisms to get there in real time.

I work at Greentown Labs with Prime Lightworks in my role as Executive in Residence. Kyle is a regular attendee at my CEO Dinner. This is a well structured startup with good management and vision making excellent progress. Strongly recommended.

Johnny Bowman

If there is one startup I think can and will change the course of travel and energy, it is Prime Lightworks. I've known Kyle for the last 8 years. I've been on the edge of my seat waiting for Prime Lightworks to enter the world for the last two.
