Event description


Enjoy a beer from one of the finest breweries right on the SpaceX lot while listening to a panel of top SpaceTech Leaders!


The legacy of space tech in and around the city of Los Angeles stretches all the way back to World War II. The industry reached its peak during the Cold War, with 15 of the 25 largest U.S. aerospace companies based in Southern California.

From that talent base emerged a new wave of aeronautics companies, startups like SpaceX, Relativity Space, Virgin Orbit, Rocket Lab and others that are changing how we think about space travel.

Fun fact: Space-related technologies brought in an estimated $2.3 billion in venture capital in 2018.

LA’s space sector also includes NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force, which has an outpost in Hawthorne.
