Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

The Colorado Springs-based Space Foundation will partner with Toffler Associates – owned by author Alan Toffler who wrote “Future Shock” – to host the second annual Space Business Forum on June 4 at the Hilton New York Hotel.

The event, a follow up to the record-breaking Colorado Springs Space Symposium that attracted 8,000 attendees at The Broadmoor hotel in early April – is designed for Wall Street analysts, investment bankers, institutional advisors and high-risk insurers who want information about aerospace and defense financing and investment opportunities emerging from new commercial space ventures.

Two of the forum’s speakers, Richard Garriott and Eric Anderson, will discuss their own experiences as Star Trek-esque space travelers and entrepreneurs.
