Entrepreneurship in Space
October 24, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM PDT
Entrepreneurship takes vision, courage, and persistence – and every such endeavor has an inspiring story! Leaders from the industry will share the motivations that have sparked the conception of their companies, fuelled their innovations, and driven positive change in the world through space-based endeavors. They will also share insights from their journeys to success – for example, what it takes to establish and maintain a competitive edge in the space industry, staying abreast of avenues and expectations associated with funding opportunities, embracing flexibility, striking a balance between marketing, strategy and technical development, and nurturing company growth.
The panelists represent institutions expanding the frontiers of technology, services, sustainability and quality of life via space-exploration focused endeavors.
