Today we're excited to have a longtime friend of the Acquired family on the LP Show, Rob Meyerson. Rob was the President of Blue Origin for 15 years, and today is an investor and advisor to space industry startups. Ben recorded this interview live at the fantastic aerospace industry conference, ASCEND, where Rob is the Executive Producer. In this interview we cover:

  • How Blue Origin started, and what it was like in the early days (spoiler: they weren't yet building rockets!)
  • Rob’s experience working directly for Jeff Bezos
  • What’s changed about SpaceX since May of 2020, when we did our Acquired episode on the company
  • Rob’s theses about what sectors of commercial space are poised for growth in the next few years
