Founder of Orbitmuse, a crowd funding platform for space-related projects and startups to support global innovation in Space entrepreneurship

In 2016, I founded and built Orbitmuse, an online crowd funding platform for space-related projects and startups to support global innovation in Space entrepreneurship. I mainly created the platform to address the following problems:

  • Space and aerospace companies lack access to specialized early stage facilities, finance and tools to succeed

  • Locations for prototyping facilities are limited and expensive

  • Funding projects mandate technical expertise

  • Timelines are protracted

  • Regulatory constraints are a vortex for new entrants

  • Getting to space is a capital-intensive deterrent for commercially viable products

  • Market vetting is difficult due to sparse data

 

The platform became a 360 degree ecosystem for Space, Aerospace, Robotics, and Defense Startups that had a growing global community and mentorship program, expanded into innovation and prototyping labs in several locations, additional funding and investment programs, experiential education via online courseware and dynamic events. It was an amazing journey, and so grateful for the stellar work and tenacity of my co-founders, staff, advisors, and board. Though the platform wound up operations, it changed the landscape and conversation of Space entrepreneurship. Ad astra!

 

 

 

Let’s work together.

I partner with highly creative, and adventurous minds. Through this journey I help navigate a diverse range of product ideas and requirements, to build impactful platforms and data ventures that have lasting impact.
