We are proud to share that our founder and CEO Joe Laurienti was featured on the top podcast “How I Built This” with Guy Raz. Guy has interviewed some of the most successful entrepreneurs in recent history, including Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe, Ben & Jerry’s Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, and Airbnb’s Joe Gebbia, to name just a few.
Guy understood that starting a rocket propulsion company from scratch when you aren't a billionaire comes with a unique set of challenges. Like most Americans, Guy was surprised to learn that the U.S. has relied mostly on Russian-made rocket engines for several decades.
Guy and Joe delved into topics such as:
Joe’s passion and aptitude for building and “tinkering” with electronics and machines since childhood.
How Ursa Major can help government and private space companies address their rocket engine supply problems, in part by using 3D printing.
What it’s like to walk through the aerospace industry’s infamous “Valley of Death.”
