NewSpace2060 is about dreaming, talking and developing the NewSpace economy in 2060.
The vision of NewSpace2060 is to empower NewSpace entrepreneurs and startups with a view of returning to the Moon and having a fully functional interplanetary species by 2060.
After launching the NewSpace2060 International Moon Pitch competition in collaboration with the Moon Village Association at UNISPACE50+ in May 2018 and announcing the cohort of winners at the National Space Society in November 2018, it has become clear that there is an interest and desire to explore space- be it scientists, researchers, investors, explorers.
My vision is to work with entrepreneurs and stakeholders to reach that dream.
In early December 2018, I launched the EU- Japan NewSpace2060 International Illustrated Haiku Competition 2019 (previously) EU – Japan NewSpace2060 Poetry Manga competition 2019 with a view of engaging present, potential and stakeholders of NewSpace actors – be it as Judges, sponsors, supporters or as participants.
Submissions will go towards contributing to the EU – Japan NewSpace2060 blog aimed at exploring NewSpace startups in EU – Japan and topics of interests to entrepreneurs, startups and aspiring entrepreneurs.
