Who We Are


Advocate for SpaceNorth

SpaceX. NASA. Blue Origin - We want your offices here. We're going out into our business community and having conversations about Minnesota as SpaceNorth. We hope to develop strategic partners that can be on board with our SpaceNorth mission as a benefit to the Minnesota business landscape and the people who live and work here.

Aerospace & STEM Events

We plan to host or collaborate with other organizations in Minnesota to host aerospace and STEM activities and events. In our mission to build a technically curious workforce, we want to engage Minnesota youth in interactive and fun aerospace and STEM activities and events.

Supporting Anoka County Composite Squadron Cadet Programs

We support the innovative youth leadership programming at the Anoka County Composite Squadron Civil Air Patrol. As Starbird supports aerospace and STEM with youth, we want to support the needs of an organization that shares our goals.
