Welcome to SpaceDotBiz by me, Ian Vorbach.
SpaceDotBiz helps you invest in the space industry.
I believe the emerging space economy provides a rare opportunity to tap into humanity’s innate desire for exploration while also benefiting economically.
We’re at a truly unique period of history where private individuals and companies are for the first time building incredible new technologies beyond our planet’s surface. The benefits of that innovation will go to the people who know how to take that groundbreaking technology and solve real problems both here on Earth and beyond.
As a rocket propulsion engineer and investor, I’ll share with you my thoughts on how to find investing opportunities in this incredible new industry.
To start (and most importantly) I care a lot about space and have for as long as I can remember. As a kid growing up in New Jersey, my favorite destination was New York City’s Hayden Planetarium and that early passion led me to pursue space-related academics in sciences and engineering. I have held operating roles in business development and scaled unicorn startups outside the space industry. I’ve also worked as a propulsion engineer on multiple rocket engine development programs. Further, I’m an angel investor both inside and outside the space industry. I have an MBA from Wharton, an MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford, and a BS in Physics from Yale. I’ve held roles of President of Wharton’s Aerospace & Defense Club, co-founder and co-team lead of Stanford’s first student liquid rocket program, and founding team member of the Yale Undergraduate Aerospace Association. I’m currently the President of the Alumni Association for Stanford’s Aeronautics and Astronautics Department.
