Next week, join NASA and the US Space Force for a fireside chat about business opportunities in the new space age – TechCrunch

The booming space industry is changing and growing at an unprecedented rate. It is the most complex and expensive sector, and the traditional boundaries between national security, civil and commercial space are rapidly changing to create new opportunities.

We are thrilled to announce that on November 2 we will be hosting a FREE 30 minute live webinar titled, Full Speed: Accelerating Government and Business Collaboration in the New Space Age.

Join experienced space leaders for this candid discussion and learn how government demands for mission success intersect with new capabilities of commercial enterprises. This event is free, but you must register to attend.

The conversation, moderated by Emily Calandrelli, an MIT-trained engineer and Emmy-nominated science television host, features Steve Isakowitz, president and CEO of The Aerospace Corporation; Gen. David D. “DT” Thompson, Vice Chief of Space Operations, United States Space Force; Mandy Vaughn, CEO and Founder of GXO, Inc.; and Alex MacDonald, chief economist at NASA.

Topics on the table include:

  • The challenges of “rapidly changing space,” including key trends and drivers of change that are impacting missions and shaping this moment in space.
  • Current capability gaps regarding specific applications, mission integration challenges and a strong workforce.
  • How to make the most of business capabilities at the national level to support the success of the company’s mission.
  • Opportunities for new space companies to partner and do business with government space programs.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of partnership opportunities to usher in a new era of human achievement in space.

Full Speed: Accelerating Government and Business Collaboration in the New Space Age will take place on November 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. (PT) / 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (ET). Join today to attend 100% free.
