Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and Silicon Valley Space Center (SVSC) invite you to join us October 18- 20 for a 3 day workshop specifically designed to find solutions, opportunites and lower barriers for entrepreneurs in the Low Earth Orbit and NewSpace industries.
CASIS is the organization chosen by NASA to be the sole managers of the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory. The mission of CASIS is to maximize use of this unparalleled platform to benefit humankind.
Silicon Valley Space Center is a business accelerator and hub of entrepeneurial activity pertaining to NewSpace. SVSC is led by Sean Casey, who is according to many, "The most connected man of the space industry in Silicon Valley."
In addtion to presentations and panels. all attendees will participate in "workshopping" through challenges and questions about how to lower barriers in the NewSpace industry.
Lunch and snacks are provided all three days and there is a reception on Friday. Nearby hotels are listed at the bottom of this eventbrite.
