To Infinity and Beyond: Guest Robert Jacobson

Aug 27, 2020 | Podcast


Chris and Neal welcome Space investor and entrepreneur Robert C. Jacobson to the show. Robert provides a comprehensive overview of this spectacular industry, allowing everyone on Earth to understand the integral role space plays in our lives, how it will continue to transform the world, and how eventually we may all participate. It’s an industry that is notoriously complex—which means it is misunderstood. It influences and benefits nearly every other industry on the planet and finally how accessing space has never been easier.

His experience in private equity and angel investing is as a cofounder investment firm Desert Sky Holdings, and a principal with the Space Angels Network, which targeted early-stage aerospace opportunities.

Jacobson is an experienced and successful community builder, and he counts co-founding the Aerospace & Defense Forum – a global aerospace and defense leadership community of over 1500 executives – and co-founding the 62MileClub.

Jacobson is a bridge-builder who connects fast-paced transformative efforts to meet goals and objectives, skills facilitated by his unique education.

His background includes a degree from the University of Southern California, where he studied business and music, earned an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, completion of the Space Studies Program at Israel’s Technion Institute, and a certificate of Real Estate Investments from UCLA Extension.
