Tech startups can be compared to NASA in the 1960's. Here is how we look at it.

 
 

NASA had
an audacious goal

John F. Kennedy stated in 1962:
"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win."

NASA is about
progressing humanity

NASA's Vision: We reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humankind.

NASA has helped us better understand our world, our climate, the human body and how our universe works. NASA has also invented many useful technologies.

Some credit can be given to NASA for helping America become the technology capital of the world. Through NASA, billions of dollars have been spent in educating engineers and creating new technology. An environment of highly educated people who know how to create something amazing quickly was spawned from this drive.

and tested quickly

NASA learned
from failures

The Apollo 1 tragedy in 1967 left three American astronauts dead from an unexpected fire. 

NASA quickly learned what had gone wrong and fixed the problem. 

NASA still met its decade goal and kept each Apollo safe with no further deaths.
