About Us

Moonshot Commons started in 2021 when a group of technologists got together in a basement, and decided to build. In three days, "Moonshot" projects -- from Brain Computer Interfaces to rocket engines -- were created, while a vibrant community of engineers was formed.

Today, Moonshot Commons has become a global builder community for Gen-Z engineers. With over 8,000 members, more than 50 founders saw their ideas went from 0 to venture backed, with many more launching soon.

Our belief remains the same. We support technical founders from day 0 because we believe the next SpaceX and Apple will: belong to Gen-Z's, be engineering-driven, misunderstood at first, and global by default.
