Why Space? Why Starting from Hong Kong?
Space is all around us. It is the true “Nature.” With the right technology we can sense a new universe and in this new universe. Sustainable businesses are not purely about technology, but technologies for the right markets and being led by the right talents with a foundation in digital understanding. Without data, and data downlink from space, our city cannot be a Smart City.
Seeing such connectivity and boundless reality expand our mind-sight and prepare us better for innovation opportunities and adaptation. More importantly, working and journeying together to find these use cases with, and for our entrepreneurs, will certainly bring forth more positive energy.
Join us, show up, and front up!
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.
Create new educational missions, 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 with HKU.
Establish “OASA Chapters" and laboratories at universities by connecting corporates, students, research institutes to work on identifying new use cases and at the same time, grounding ESG (Environment, Sustainability, and Governance) and United Nation’s 17 SDG challenges.
Leverage on OASA university chapters to extend new careers in the Space Economy, certifying these young cadets on their readiness to explore. 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.
