Idea’s which can have a major impact on our lives. How far is too far when it gets into investing in crazy ideas with crazy potential to generate returns for investors.
Let me share some of my moonshot investments on no name basis. I just love being able to brag about these portfolio companies grand ideas.
Moonshot investing is a function of your reasoning and your imagination
There is unlimited potential for the creation of human environments in space around Earth, the Moon and Mars. If we are going to have the technology and capabilities needed for tomorrow, we have to invest in them today so I ended up investing in world’s first commercial space station.
The company intends to build multiple space stations for commercial operations. The ISS (International Space Station) is scheduled to lose U.S. funding in 2025 and even if its life is extended to 2028 NASA and other governments are seeking a commercial replacement. Current spend on the human flight to ISS is $2 Bn per year and is expected to be $6 Bn per year by 2030.
The company offers at 50X lower cost than ISS. The company is set to generate revenue of more than $ 100 Mn this year. It’s said that outlier hits is all about making money, moonshots don’t just make money, they also impact the world in a significant way.
I invest in founders that have experience behind them, subject matter experts and can effectively execute.
All electronic devices need power. Power transmission through the air in unlimited amounts with no loss is called wireless power. The company makes charging of devices as seamless as WiFi, removing one of the final barriers impeding electronics today and enabling new technologies.
Wireless power is a whole new paradigm, and it’s time to begin the new revolution. It requires no plugs, wires, or charging pads. With a cable, you have one socket charging one device.
