Embark on a thrilling exploration beyond the frontiers of our planet with "Global Threads in Space: Weaving Communication and Collaboration in the Cosmic Fabric". This engaging presentation delves into how the burgeoning space sector is not merely about reaching new heights but is intricately connected to our daily lives and global communication.


By the year 2040, the space industry is poised to amplify its economic impact to an astonishing 3 trillion dollars. But beyond the astronomical figures lies a web of innovations that intertwine with everyday applications—from navigating your daily commute with GPS to enhancing agricultural yields through advanced weather prediction technologies. These advancements are pivotal in addressing the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, showcasing the practical and profound influence of space technology on global welfare.


However, a significant challenge remains: the pervasive lack of public awareness about these contributions. This obscurity impedes the nurturing of a diverse and inclusive workforce essential for the sector's future breakthroughs. Today's talk serves as a clarion call to demystify the space ecosystem and spotlight the multifaceted benefits it offers.


Join us as we unveil the crucial role of global communication in the space sector, highlighting how collaborative efforts can lead to sustainable solutions that extend beyond our earthly boundaries. We'll explore visionary projects like asteroid mining and solar energy harvesting from space, illustrating the boundless possibilities that space technology holds.


This session is designed to ignite your imagination and inspire a new generation to look upwards—not just to gaze at the stars but to actively engage in shaping a sustainable, interconnected future. Let's harness the collective potential of humanity to foster a brighter tomorrow through the wonders of space.

What is Startup Grind?



Startup Grind was founded in 2010 when our founder, Derek Andersen got some friends and fellow entrepreneurs together to crack the same problem they were all facing: the growing challenges of launching a company.


We host a lot of events. But more than that, Startup Grind is a community. We bring like-minded yet diverse individuals together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, and belong.


We were founded in Silicon Valley, but our chapters have roots in 600 cities across 125 countries (and counting!)


Our mission:

To give startups everywhere the education and opportunities they need to build, grow, and scale their companies.


Our values:

We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving first, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself.
