Jordan Noone

Space Entrepreneur and Founding CTO of Relativity Space to Discuss the Newspace Enterprise

Jordan Noone, General Partner of Embedded Ventures and founding CTO of rocket company Relativity Space, will join the roster of preeminent speakers at the National Space Society’s 2024 International Space Development Conference® (ISDC®), which will be presented at the LAX Sheraton Gateway Hotel from May 23-26 in Los Angeles, CA.

Noone is the Co-Founder and a General Partner at Embedded Ventures, a next generation venture capital firm investing in early-stage deep tech startups. The firm invests in pre-seed, seed and Series A rounds for startups focused on space operations, digital engineering, and advanced manufacturing. In addition to his role at Embedded, Jordan is the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of portfolio company Zoo, the first such company to develop advanced tools for hardware design. Noone previously co-founded Relativity Space, which was most recently valued at $4.2 billion. As Relativity’s CTO for five years, he focused on technical direction and engineering design for the advanced 3D-printed rocket company. As a leader of the University of Southern California’s Rocket Propulsion Lab, where he worked with NSS VP of Space Development Dr. Greg Autry, Noone became the first student and youngest individual to receive Federal Aviation Administration clearance to fly a rocket into space.

“We’re proud to have Jordan speaking at the ISDC,” said Dale Skran, COO of NSS. “The development of space will not go forward without entrepreneurial companies like Relativity Space and finance partners like Embedded Ventures paving the way ahead.”
