Space 2.0
Welcome to The Eighth Continent™ Project.


The Eighth Continent Project is the world’s most comprehensive effort to integrate space into the global economy.

Eighth Continent brings space down to Earth with the industry’s first trade association, business incubator, venture fund and research hub, all working together to develop “Space 2.0” – the emerging generation of space business ventures with real profit potential – here and now.

Space 1.0 is astronauts, rocket ships and billion-dollar government projects. Like Web 2.0, Space 2.0 is venture-backed entrepreneurs starting companies that deliver exciting new content to thousands of businesses and mass consumer markets.

Eighth Continent provides the infrastructure and resources to solve a wide range of challenges from renewable energy development to biomedical advances to global security.

Whether you are a passionate visionary or a seasoned pragmatist, the Eighth Continent offers the resources you need to succeed in Space 2.0.
