Jeffrey Max is chairman and chief executive of Agile Space Industries. Founded in 2009, the company is leading a transformation in the way propulsion systems for space vehicles are designed, manufactured and tested.

A long career as a tech entrepreneur and investor, he has held previous positions across a range of Fintech startups with multiple exits.

In this in-depth conversation, Jeffrey reflects on joining Agile, and his mission to drive business growth, recruit young local talent and to help the team realise their full potential; discusses their innovative machinery that is created using 3D programming and can “take the design, development and testing cycle from a year to weeks;” and describes how faster development and reusable elements are minimising the cost of space exploration, and their central role in the “dawn of a new space era.”
