The Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has announced his space start-up Privateer. Entrepreneurs are eyeing the space industry as their next frontier. We’ve already had Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson join the league: now it’s Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak’s turn. Earlier last month, Wozniak announced that he intends to set up a private space company called Privateer Spaces, which will focus on the safety and accessibility of outer space for all people.
The company will be founded by Wozniak with the help of Ripcord founder Alex Fielding. Wozniak posted a YouTube video explaining the Privateer Space vision. A powerful message starts off the video – “Together we will go far.”
In July, Virgin Galactic’s founder Richard Branson traveled into space on a test flight, which sparked a race to promote space tourism. Within a week, Amazon founder Bezos did the same in his company’s private spacecraft, Blue Origin. On Wednesday, September 15, SpaceX is launching its first private mission into space.
Company information hasn’t been disclosed yet. The site says Privateer will attend the AMOS (Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies) conference in Wailea, Hawaii, two days from now, among other things. “The sky is no longer the limit,” and “We are in stealth mode.” the website says.
45 years ago, he stood alongside Steve Jobs when the Apple brand was born. A decade later, he introduced a groundbreaking desktop computer that changed the IT industry forever. In addition to seeing him live, visitors will also have the chance to ask him questions. There will be other prominent business personalities speaking at SWCSummit besides Steve Wozniak. Tickets can be purchased at swcsummit.com.
