By Joe Sweeny
Peter Beck is the Founder and CEO of Rocket Lab, a company whose mission is to “go to space to improve life on Earth.” Rocket Lab is the second largest rocket company in the world and one of the few driving down launch costs, making it cheaper to get into space. Peter shares his unique business insights as a Founder and Engineer at the forefront of rocket design.
From starting the business back in 2006, to date Rocket Lab has launched 109 satellites and their Electron rocket is the second most frequently launched rocket in the US.
Last year the company debuted on Nasdaq, backed by venture capital firm Khosla Ventures, which has invested over several rounds since 2013.
On the show today, I talk to this out-of-the-world founder on the challenges and opportunities space offers investors and what you should know about the future of the space industry.
