Many of us have dreamed of a bright future where humanity travels the solar system and beyond, inhabiting other planets and learning about the universe through scientific exploration. 

The passion of entrepreneurs is needed in the realm of space, as this massive endeavor cannot be confined to governments and the military industrial complex. Pioneering entrepreneurs and visionaries have already proven the potential for private space companies to achieve commercial success, and on this webinar we will discuss the various business opportunities and challenges facing prospective space entrepreneurs today. 

This online event will be hosted by Adeo Ressi (Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute), and feature special guest Dr. Bob Richards.

Dr. Robert (Bob) Richards is a space entrepreneur and futurist. He is a Co-Founder of the International Space University, Singularity University, SEDS, the Space Generation Foundation and Moon Express, Inc. a space transportation and lunar resources company located at Cape Canaveral, where he currently serves as President and CEO. Bob chairs the Space Commerce Committee of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, serves on the board of the Space Foundation, and is a member of the International Institute of Space Law. As Director of the Optech Space Division from 2002-2009, Bob led the company's technology into orbit in 2004 and to the surface of Mars in 2007 aboard the NASA Phoenix Lander, making the first discovery of falling Martian snow. Bob is also an evangelist of the "NewSpace" movement and has been a catalyst for a number of commercial space ventures. 

On this webinar we will discuss: 
- The various business opportunities where entrepreneurs can start space-related companies: What are the various space challenges that require innovation, and where should entrepreneurs focus?
