Silver Screen Startups

2018-12-11T13:37:51+00:00

Here at The Cannon, we’re big fans of the little guy duking it out against entrenched powers and coming out on top. David over Goliath. Luke Skywalker and the Rebels over Darth Vader and the Empire.

People don’t like taking their medicine. It’s been true since Mary Poppins offered up a spoonful of sugar to those two obstinate children. Young or old, we as humans struggle to keep up with the pills and potions prescribed to save our lives, and it costs us dearly in lost lives and dollars.

Startups In Space Yesterday, Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa announced a partnership with Space X: a 2023 flight around the moon. The project, dubbed #dearMoon, will culminate in a week long journey with Maezawa and six to eight artists from around the world. Pretty cool, right? Space X and Musk have been at the forefront of space innovation for a while now, but they’re not the only ones with skin in the game. The space-startup space grows bigger every year, and the ambitious leaders of the companies comprising it are taking us to places we can only imagine. Check out a [...]
