DESCRIPTION

As President and COO of SpaceX, Gwynne Shotwell is responsible for the company’s day-to-day operations and for managing all customer and strategic relations. She joined SpaceX in 2002 as Vice President of Business Development and the company’s seventh employee. Since that time she has helped SpaceX secure over 100 missions to its manifest, representing over $12 billion in contracts.

In addition to building the Falcon vehicle family of launches, Shotwell is also driving efforts to fly people on SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft, send private passengers around the Moon, and land the first private spacecraft on Mars.

On Wednesday, October 11th, Shotwell will share SpaceX’s story on the road to Mars. After the talk, there will be a Q&A session hosted by Steve Jurvetson from DFJ Venture Capital.

Doors open at 6:30pm.
