I don't think there's a topic for this new French rocket start-up, Venture Orbital Systems.

Their COO has put out an AMA today:

Their Twitter is quite active. They had one of these "Ask Me Anything Days" less than a month ago (on May 28th), during which they claimed to still be on track for a 2024 launch of their orbital-class Zephyr rocket.

Where will they launch from?.

This article says "the Guyanese Space Center in Kourou, and a launch site in Northern Europe" (machine translated, apologies for spelling), and the below tweet from today's "Ask Me Anything" affirmed that they're looking at European launch sites in addition to Guiana. My intuition would be that they're thinking And°ya or Esrange, since Sutherland or Shetland require a boat ride (and may not count as "Northern Europe"), but I haven't seen anything to confirm that.

And the prize for predicting where Venture Orbital Systems would launch from goes to...anyone but me, since I'd ruled out the Scottish sites. But they've just announced a partnership with SaxaVord (formerly known as the Shetland Space Centre). This makes them the fifth prospective small-launch company to sign with SaxaVord, along with ABL, HyImpulse, C6 Launch, and of course Skyrora.
