Founding team member and first investor
2014 - 2015 (about 1 year)
After selling Titan to Google, I kicked off the next big thing with my brother Jonathan. I got a hold of Alexander Bolonkin's book: Non-Rocket Space Launch and Flight, a 488-page...more behemoth where he had numerous fascinating centripetal schemes and out of those was born our idea of a ground-based kinetic launcher to disrupt the rocket equation. I came up with the name SpinLaunch, seeded the company from my sale of Titan, raised the first two rounds of capital, and we were off to the races.
