So far in this series of articles discussing the state of the Entrepreneurial space sector we have set the stage for our little space opera, and we have talked about the hero of the piece - The Founder of the space start-up company.  As we discussed in the last article, founding a company is normally a journey that starts out with a great idea for a new technology or a novel application of an existing technology.  Normally the journey then progresses through the stage of turning the technology into a product that customers want to buy (for more than it costs to make) and eventually ends up at the stage of creating and maintaining a business that can produce and deliver the product to those customers at a profit.
