Space, the final frontier! And OC is all about it. Southern California has long been a hub for aerospace and space engineering specifically. There's some strong talent in OC which keeps the companies nearby and new ones popping up. Rocket Lab was founded in Huntington Beach and recently moved to Long Beach. And Long Beach based Virgin Galactic will be moving to Tustin. Welcome to town, Sir Richard Branson! What other space companies should we be keeping an eye on in OC?
Speaking of out of this world, the announcements of new social impact initiative funds by RevOz and ServiceNow, both with Newport Beach offices, are incredible. I'm hoping we see more and more of this kind of corporate commitment to our underserved communities.
