Leading Silicon Valley Innovators to Tackle Global Innovation Challenges

SAN FRANCISCO, June 12, 2013 –Space-Time-Insight today announced that Rob Schilling, the company’s CEO has been selected by British Airways and its partners to participate in UnGrounded, the company’s inaugural Innovation Lab in the Sky. The group will work on global challenges at 30,000 feet, aboard a private British Airways flight from San Francisco to London on June 12, 2013. Mr. Schilling will join more than 100 industry leaders and change agents, to collaboratively address the global STEM skills gap with the goal of accelerating global innovation.

Participants were nominated by global technology leaders in both Silicon Valley and London, with primary input from the UnGrounded advisory board. The advisory board is made up of senior representation from RocketSpace, Silicon Valley Bank, Andreessen Horowitz, Stanford University and Innovation Endeavors. All participants have been hand-selected to participate based on their experience and passion for driving the acceleration of innovation within developed and emerging communities across the world.

“UnGrounded is an exciting opportunity for industry leaders to come together and collaborate around solutions to real-world problems,” said Rob Schilling, CEO of Space-Time Insight. “I personally look forward to participating in the flight and contributing to the creation of a plan to accelerate the proliferation of impactful technology around the globe.”

Space-Time Insight’s software is used to visualize and analyze data from any number of systems. Its solutions are deployed at major businesses around the world to help them gain mission critical insights into their operations and make faster informed decisions. One such organization uses Space-Time Insight to monitor the storage and delivery of food and supplies in impoverished and war-torn regions, a good example of how technology might be applied in developing markets.

Upon landing, the ideas and solutions created on the flight will be received by the United Nations ITU Secretary General at the DNA Summit, in association with the G8 Innovation Conference, in London.

“As we’re approaching the launch of UnGrounded on June 12, we’re excited to see the top visionaries and leaders from Silicon Valley bring their distinct perspectives and skills together to tackle the critical global challenge around the STEM skills gap,” said Simon Talling-Smith, EVP of the Americas for British Airways. “Face-to-face connection ignites the exchange of amazing ideas, and by bringing these bright minds together, British Airways and our partners, the United Nations and DNA Summit, look to spark and accelerate innovation to affect global change.”
