Venturing to Mars


Making Green on the Red Planet

Mars entrepreneurship has entered its lift off phase.  The US Government is preparing for manned missions to Mars but private companies like SpaceX may well get there first. Elon Musk declared that SpaceX will put one million people on Mars.

Entrepreneurial opportunities already have emerged in areas like Launch, Sensors, Instrumentation and Habitats.  Join us to hear expert speakers from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, industry insiders and entrepreneurial startups.

The program launches with Keynote Presentations from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Featuring a panel discussion with audience questions, the program is designed to provide researchers and entrepreneurs with insights for navigating among the Government and Prime Contractor gatekeepers in commercial efforts to make mankind a multi-planetary species.
