Lex goes USA, come meet us!
Lex Hoefsloot — Co-Founder
The dust has settled following the public launch in June, which has brought us the helping hand of many. Not only can we announce that dozens of people are interested in placing or have already placed a reservation for the Lightyear One, we have also received many applications from talent all over the world passionate about collaborating on our mission. We are expanding our team, with our most urgent vacancy being a Mechanical Architect. Although these are still humble beginnings, our movement is taking shape.
So what have I been up to? I was honoured to participate in the Global Solutions Program at Singularity University. Together with 89 people from 47 different countries chosen from thousands of applications, Lex has had a crash course in the future from the world’s best thinkers, including Peter Diamandis (“The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” – by Fortune Magazine) and Ray Kurzweil (“the ultimate thinking machine” by Forbes and as a “restless genius” by The Wall Street Journal).

I think that the insight gained in the trends that will play out in the coming 5 to 15 years is crucial and this is a great place to take a deep dive into them. It is extremely important to stay ahead and these weeks have given me interesting insights into what is coming. Singularity University also provides a platform to reach out to investors, technology leaders and partners in the Silicon Valley. We will also be visiting investors, potential partners and people interested in reserving a Lightyear One in the San Francisco area until the end of August.
Launch in San Francisco.
We’re also excited to announce that it will organize a private launch in San Francisco on the 28th of August. As committed follower, we want to give you the opportunity to introduce people that we should connect with in San Francisco! Please leave their names in this 1-minute introduction form so we can send them an invitation.
