The 8th Continent Project accelerates the integration of aerospace-derived technology and content into the global economy.
The 8th Continent Project is a national program with global reach. It is wholly a program within the Colorado School of Mines, a U.S. public higher education institution.
8C currently operates in three emerging Space 2.0 economic regions — Colorado’s Front Range (Denver-Boulder-Colorado Springs), New England (Boston-Cambridge), and the U. S. National Capital Region (Washington-Northern Virginia-Maryland). Expansion is planned in 2011 into Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Madrid, and San Francisco.
Space 1.0 = Astronauts, rocket ships and billion-dollar government projects = the shoulders on which Space 2.0 stands.
Space 2.0 = Aerospace-derived technology and content delivering solutions for today’s needs — from energy to biomedical, photonics to nanotech, software to location-based/GPS.
Nearly 30 ventures…and growing. See: 8th Continent’s Portfolio
