Sven Meyer-Brunswick works at ViaLight Communications to build the telecommunication infrastructure of the future and is responsible for strategy and investor relations.
ViaLight develops and distributes laser communication solutions allowing ultra high data rate and long distance wireless data transmission for airborne and space applications. Laser communication can be thought of as the optical fiber for the skies and space and is a key technology for cost-efficient satellite communication for telecommunication constellations and earth observation missions. It also serves as an enabler for international as well as regional airborne network structures above the clouds involving hundreds or thousands of drones, UAVs, balloons or airplanes. ViaLight is a spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and its products are based on a heritage of more than 20 years of high-tech engineering as well as intensive ongoing collaboration with DLR. The resulting product excellence combined with a strong focus on cost efficiency allowed ViaLight to attract several leading international enterprises as customers and to become the world leader in the commercialization of laser communication.
Sven has a history of driving projects in a large range of industries and joined ViaLight to use his diverse background in engineering, design and innovation to support the telecom infrastructure revolution. He holds a MS in Photonics Engineering of the Technical University of Denmark, a BS of the Technical University of Munich and completed programs at the London School of Economics, the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology. Prior to joining ViaLight he laid groundwork in the foundation of what is now part of one of the most successful esport organisations in Germany and developed and launched a range of mobile apps in areas as diverse as entertainment, social networks and charity. He also worked on product innovation for fiber optic telecom networks and started an online fashion label - all before even finishing his university education.
