[Past Event] Why Billionaires Are Fueling the Space Race and How It Will Help Humanity

Families of Worth is a community of diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences contributing to the betterment of the whole. The Families of Worth Virtual series brings together values-driven and impactful individuals—from founders and CEOs to major philanthropists—to hear unique speakers, forge new connections and foster a culture of equality and diversity. Providing a high-touch experience for the Families of Worth Community with informative dialogue around philanthropy, impact, innovation, legacy, succession, relationships, social inclusion, diversity and more. Worth will create engaging storytelling and intimate, connection-building experiential events that create multiple and authentic touchpoints and build relationships.

The privatization of human space flight will only continue to ramp up in coming years, as billionaires such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson race to create cheap, commercialized space travel. While these big names definitely hope to make money in this new market, they are also filling huge voids left by governments that have had to cut funding for space missions—not to mention, radically transforming our future in the process.

    Family business owners often face challenges beyond the bottom line, especially when it comes to embracing younger generations and bringing them into the mix. One of the most important aspects of keeping a business through generations is passing on values and philosophies, not only around the business but also around philanthropy. Join us for a discussion on how to successfully bring family members together to create a lasting impact through your business that will last for generations to come.
