Skip to main content The Moonshot Factory

We are inventors, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, designers, and polymaths who are determined to make progress against the world’s most stubborn problems

There’s no playbook for taking moonshots — and we like it that way. Building things that are on the edge of the impossible means we have to embrace ambiguity and be prepared to tinker, experiment, and learn our way into the future. Responsibly irresponsible, we live in the sweet spot between audacity and humility, idealistic and pragmatic. Passionately dispassionate, we ask hard questions, seek out diverse perspectives, and find inspiration in weird and unexpected places.

Innovation is a team sport

Small, fast-moving, intellectually honest teams can have an impact that’s huge relative to their size. We’re looking for pioneers, dreamers, and agents of change who want to develop moonshot technologies that are both good business and good for the world.
