José Mariano López Urdiales (Zero 2 Infinity)
CEO & Founder
Sparked by his lifetime exposure to rockets, balloons and Space Exploration projects in which his father was involved, Jose Mariano became an entrepreneur in 2009 when he founded Zero 2 Infinity. He set himself to change the way we go to Space. An MIT-grad, from Aero/Astro, he’s convinced that frequent and low cost access to Space is around the corner. And it does not require new technologies, just using what exists in a different way. This will enable constellations of microsatellites to better connect and protect the Earth. Even affordable Space Tourism is possible, as he proposed back in 2002. To prepare himself to start Zero 2 Infinity he worked at Boeing Phantom Works, the Boston Consulting Group and the European Space Agency. Surrounded by a group of talented youngsters and industry veterans, with Zero 2 Infinity, he’s proving there are no limits.
