Spaceport Camden Partners with NASA Innovation Competition
by Staff Writers
Camden County GA (SPX) Apr 29, 2016 Spaceport Camden has partnered with Startup NASA's SPACE RACE in order to launch the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. Spaceport Camden Project Leader, Steve Howard, will serve as a judge in the SPACE RACE competition where student-based teams aim to commercialize promising NASA inventions through a startup challenge.
Entries are being accepted until May 1st and judging will occur in early September. "I am excited to represent Spaceport Camden as a judge for Startup NASA's SPACE RACE," said Mr. Howard.
"These students are our future. The technologies they commercialize and the companies they found will propel humanity forward beyond the edge of what's currently possible.
That's the vision of Spaceport Camden and we are thrilled to support the SPACE RACE challenge."
The SPACE RACE allows college students to meet world-class mentors/advisors, win prize money, as well as launch a startup around a commercially viable NASA invention.
Teams will also have an opportunity to earn seed funding and make a significant, sustainable impact on our region.
"We are confident that this challenge will foster a new generation of talented and highly motivated entrepreneurs and we are grateful for the support of national space industry leaders like Steve Howard," said Rosemarie Truman, Founder and CEO of the Center for Advancing Innovation (CAI).
"Spaceport Camden is a necessary and strategic East-Coast asset in the commercial space industry's infrastructure portfolio and we expect it will play host to many of the companies spun off through the SPACE RACE."
