Charles Mudd will be unable to join us Thursday evening due to inclement weather. In his place, Aaron Pagel will present on creating value in the NewSpace industry. There are a lot of effective ways to approach strategy and sometimes the most common way is by following the example of other successful companies. But is that the most efficient method when blazing a completely new path into a largely untouched NewSpace economy? Aaron Pagel will relate the basics of microeconomic theory to help entrepreneurs consider what economic value they create, how they are capturing it, space industry forces that might affect profitability, and question what competitive advantage really means.
Aaron Pagel is the Executive Director of the Center for Space Commerce and Finance. His diverse background in leadership, arts, operations, marketing, and business strategy makes him an ideal leader for the Center. After 10 years as an actor and filmmaker, Aaron earned his MBA in Marketing, Applied Economics, and Business Strategy and Decision Making from DePaul University in Chicago with distinction. He serves as a Marketing Consultant for Envobius (an early stage teleportation research company) and is an Adjunct Professor of Business Strategy and Microeconomics at DePaul. Charles Mudd will return next month to present on space law and property rights in space.
This is part of a continuing series of space entrepreneurship discussion and networking forums presented by NewSpace Chicago and hosted at mHUB Chicago.
