An Out of this World Workshop - November 4, 2018
Each generation, a California industry revolutionizes the world. Film, aviation, governmental spaceflight, personal computing, Internet, smart mobile devices & apps have made all our lives exciting, richer and more productive.
If you follow Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Paul Allen and Jeff Bezos then you know that “the next big thing” is New Space. Each of these entrepreneurs and many more have invested their money and souls into moving humankind more rapidly toward a future in space. They are committed to doing this in a peaceful, sustainable and commercial way. While the New Space movement is global, the largest concentration of these firms and talent is found right around USC. Data from the Space Foundation shows that the current space economy is already several times larger than the app market and a 2018 Bank of America report projects this industry will grow to $2.7 Trillion in 25 years – twice the size of the Russian economy. Join us on November 4 to learn more about this exciting domain and the research going on within it.
USC’s Southern California Commercial Spaceflight Initiative is at the center of all this. Located within the Marshall School of Business’ innovative Greif Center, SCCSI mission is to:
Lead in the development and distribution of research that supports the entrepreneurial space economy, ensuring a brighter future in space for our region, the nation and the world.
Portions of the Commercial Spaceflight Entrepreneurship Workshop are open to undergrad and graduate students interested in learning more about careers in commercial space or seeking mentoring for their space related startups. SCCSI sponsor organizations will have the opportunity share their firm’s internship and employment opportunities with talent students from Marshall and across campus. We always make a special effortto engage students from demographics and backgrounds that are underrepresented in aerospace industry.
