Why Space? Why Starting from Hong Kong?
What We Do
We observe. We experiment. We test and explore nascent digital markets. We promote good business cases. We work with companies to redefine their new markets, coach and mentor their young talents, help secure their sponsors, ground their ESG, and begin the journey of exploration. We work with them to improve their Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR), encouraging these businesses to build and deliver products and services that truly create more joy in people's lives. Our intent is not to cause harm. We do not want these businesses to cause harm -- to the environment, to their customers, or to their staff, and definitely not to Space Ship Earth.
Establish “Space Xccelerator” programs and laboratories at universities by connecting corporates, students, research institutes to work on identifying new use cases or grounding ESG (Environment, Sustainability, and Governance) and United Nation’s 17 SDG challenges.
Kickstart summer programs and school competitions that would embellish entrepreneurship, innovation, and opening the Space Economy for Hong Kong and Greater Bay. For example, co-invent a program to develop a CubeSat train-the-trainer program for college students and hitch one CubeSat to the stars by 2022.
Leverage on OASA university chapters to extend new careers in the Space Economy, placing them into laboratories, future moonrises, and Space Tourism. For every person working outside the 100km limit that defines the edge of space, there will thousands on earth supporting that individual. Preparing future leaders so they can thrive in the new space-related economy and be a part of the interstellar supply chain is the aim.
