Minister Okada, Minister of State for Regional Development, and Orbspace Exchange Ideas in Tsukuba
On October 12, 2022, Orbspace was invited to give a presentation and exchange views with Minister Okada of the Cabinet Office in charge of regional development during his visit to the Tsukuba Startup Park. In addition to Minister Okada, the meeting was also attended by Tsukuba City Mayor Igarashi, Director General of the Secretariat for Regional Development of the Cabinet Office, and Tsukuba City officials.
Founder Aron Lentsch established Orbspace in Tsukuba City after receiving the “Ibaraki Prefecture’s first” start-up visa under the start-up visa program, which supports foreign entrepreneurs. Ibaraki Prefecture and Tsukuba City already have excellent industrial infrastructure, research and education, and financial systems. We hope to continue to receive a variety of support, including opportunities such as this one, to help us realize a new industry of space transportation and hypersonic systems, to promote regional development, and to create an environment where other foreign entrepreneurs can follow suit. We hope to contribute to the realization of a new industry of space transportation and hypersonic systems, regional development, and the creation of an environment in which other foreign entrepreneurs can follow.
