A short quote from the linked above wikipedia page that included many references and additional information.

NewSpace and entrepreneurial

space—an umbrella term for a movement and philosophy often affiliated with, but not synonymous with, an emergent private spaceflight industry. Specifically, the terms are used to refer to a community of relatively new aerospace companies working to develop low-cost access to space or spaceflight technologies and advocates of low-cost spaceflight technology and policy.
