Troy McCann | Founder and Managing Director at MoonshotX

MoonshotX cultivates early stage startups seeking to build or use next-generation space-based infrastructure to solve real problems on Earth and beyond. Its mission is to help entrepreneurs validate, grow and scale promising space technology based business models with support from a world-class network of experienced mentors, advisers and partners.

Moonshot was founded mid-2016 and is on a trajectory to become the world’s leading space business accelerator. Moonshot currently operates the 16-week Gemini Space Entrepreneurship Incubator which tools people with the strategy and experience necessary to turn an idea into an investable business, and are preparing for a 6-month Moonshot Accelerator which will provide up to 10 space related startups with rent-free office space, seed funding, access to space testing and validation resources, as well as a network of mentors and advisors.

New Space is the new tech sector and is growing from a USD$350 billion industry today into a USD$1 trillion industry by 2030. Space technology is becoming increasingly embedded into supply chains in every economic sector and of every corner of modern society. Tomorrow’s leading space entrepreneur is probably building the next big thing in their garage at this very moment!
