• About OASA

     

    We connect. We contribute. We command.

     

    The Orion Astropreneur Space Academy in Hong Kong is an independent, non-political, and not-for-profit action-oriented leadership development academy for global young leaders with stellar and outer space aspirations.  The Academy is a member of the global leadership development initiatives with other space onboarding and off-boarding institutions such as the Laboratory for Space Research at the University of Hong Kong, and other forward-looking and space-related institutions and world-class educators who believe together we can connect, contribute, and command. 

    Orion is the nebula where many stars are born. It is one of the closest nebulae to Earth in the Milky Way galaxy, making it more accessible to astronomers and earthlings.   Hence, our OASA is a nurturing ground, where outgoing global executives would pass their legacy to future generations, working jointly on problems of tomorrow. It is an open platform where companies and leaders can cross-pollinate nascent ideas.   Ultimately, space is for all humankind.

     

     

  • Our Vision

    Space Portal, Hong Kong by 2030. Your Smart City, by 2030 as well?

    On 12 Feb 2021, the Academy begins its operation by opening its global headquarters in Hong Kong

    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.  But 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.  With 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.

  • 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.

    By 2021

    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.

    By 2022

    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.

    By 2023

    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.
