AUGUST 10 - 11, 2021

WORKFORCE & INDUSTRIAL BASE

How does an idea become a reality? It happens one bolt at a time through the sweat equity of people who share a common goal. Nothing goes to space without first being put together from parts, components, wires, chips, even thermal insulators and fuels. The industrial base for space stands firmly on the ground, but no conversation about space infrastructure is complete without it. 

 

THIS MONTH, WE'LL DISCUSS:

  • Industrial Base

  • Supply Chain

  • Workforce

 

And don’t miss the NewSpace Business Plan Competition brought to you by the Center for Space Commerce and Finance. Competing teams from around the globe will face a panel of expert investment judges, and the winning team will earn a cash prize.

DON'T MISS THE C4F "SHARK TANK" STYLE NEWSPACE BUSINESS PLAN COMPETITION

Conversations for the Future will share the stage with budding space entrepreneurs vying to win the NewSpace Business Plan Competition and the $5,000 prize. Tune in as a panel of judges critique the concepts and announce the winners! This event is hosted by the Center for Space Commerce & Finance.
