We’re out-of-this-world excited to announce the complete Space Stage agenda at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023.
We’re joining forces with the Aerospace Corporation to host this stage and of course are excited to hear the startup pitches from the Space Domain Awareness Challenge Pitch-off.
Space tech, while one of the most complex and costly endeavors, provides enormous opportunity to advance humankind. But this new space age comes with a host of challenges and uncertainties, and we’ll have some of the most knowledgeable leaders join us to unpack both.
The Space Stage agenda covers a lot of parsecs — the role of American public- and private-sector partnerships; venture capital’s unease with the U.S. Defense Department; quantum and espionage; AI and warfare and more.
Check the agenda below!
