Do you have an idea for a space-related product/service, but you're not sure how to mature the idea and build a company around it?

SpaceNews has an article about a new initiative by the Founder Institute, which is the world's premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program.

500 new space startups by 2025? The Founder Institute wants to make that happen. -

The co-founder and CEO of the Founder Institute is Adeo Ressi, who was Elon Musk's college roommate, and who went with Musk to Russia when they were trying to buy a ride to Mars. Adeo is also a serial entrepreneur, and the Founder Institute has operations in 180 cities around the world. So this space-related initiative is based on their proven model with other types of startups.
