Mission of Business Pillar
Draft Version 0.1

We will deliver practical financial and market analysis that lends focus and clarity to the business challenges of developing and deploying the space elevator. Where our colleagues seek help to develop and distribute business plans related to the space elevator and its antecedent projects, we will point them to targeted, useful information and advise them on their efforts. We will develop a targeted database of financial contacts, including industry experts and sources of funding.
