troubles in trying to launch ourselves into space.

companies, universities, schools and private parties.
We always tailor the presentation for the audience. You decide if the presentation shall
be technical or more about ambitions and dreams.

“I work in the Venture business where it is all about taking risk. At a recent day-long seminar hosted by Novo Seed, a life science Venture Capital fund, I had the fortune to listen to a fantastic presentation by Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengtson. As a scientist, I must say I really like their approach and what they are trying to achieve but talk about taking risks! The risks we take in the Life Science venture world doesnt even begin to come close. Bravo!
At the end of the day, we got a slightly booring Novo tea mug as a gift to take home. I got a great surprise the next morning when I for my breakfast turned the mug around and realized it had also a Copenhagen Suborbitals logo on it. It is now my favourite mug!”,

“Not very often you come across two exceptionally inspirational people, who have the ability to show other people that if you have the determination and willpower, you can overcome almost any obstacle business can throw at you. By presenting their story on how to build a spaceship, Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengstson show the world that even seemingly impossible endeavours can become reality, as long as you rely on your own creativity and determination. With their story, they send a powerful message that should be an inspiration to any start-up company in any field or for any team that experiences issues in working-together”
Dr. Scott Minick, Partner, ARCH Ventures
“We’ve all heard, and perhaps experienced, that humanity has gone soft, that we’ve retreated into our electronic caves and adventures now occur only on computer displays and TV screens. Hearing the story of Copenhagen Suborbitals quickly convinces you that the spirit of great adventurers like Edmund Hillary, Roald Amundsen and Charles Lindberg is alive and well in Copenhagen. Like other great adventurers, Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengstsson are planning to take on one of the world’s greatest challenges using their own skills, wits and an abundance of entrepreneurial drive – manned space flight that they design, build and fly themselves. When I first heard about this effort, I thought that it might be just a couple of dreamers. After hearing Peter and Kristian present their plan, you quickly realize that these are two serious professionals with a solid plan who are quite convincing that they can accomplish their mission successfully. Like all great adventurers, Peter and Kristian encourage us all to think big, aim high, take calculated risks and give our full effort to achieving our goals."

Det var super spændende foredrag og i har gjort dybt indtryk på alle 100 ingeniører i Team Platform i Oticon. I dagene efter er snakken om "rocket science" og fokuseret direkte-mod-målet udvikling dukket op i næsten hver eneste diskussion. I var en stor bidragsyder til at gøre hele dagen til en stor succes og i har bragt smil og entusiasme op i folk. Jeg har fået flere tilkendegivelser direkte fra folk, at de er stolte over at Oticon er sponsorerer jeres projekt - så vi er med jer hele vejen."
