Gold Coast Founders: Gilmour Space


Building rocket ships by day and living the Gold Coast lifestyle by night – the team at Gilmour Space Technologies are truly living the dream!

Gilmour is pioneering a cheaper, safer and greener hybrid rocket engine that has been demonstrated to overcome long standing performance issues with hybrid technology. An orbital test in February 2018 achieved 70 kilonewtons (15,700 pounds) of thrust, possibly the world’s largest successful test of a single-port hybrid rocket engine.

From their site at Pimpama, James Gilmour shares more about his journey and vision for the space industry in Australia in this morning’s Gold Coast Founder Story.

The Gold Coast is home to some of Australia’s fastest growing digital and technology based businesses. We’re celebrating our local founders on the lead up to the Myriad Festival by sharing their stories through a series of mini documentaries in which we discover how the entrepreneurial journey began for each of the businesses, their successes, growth, future projections, and their thoughts on the changing Gold Coast business landscape and emergence of innovation as a key economic driver for the region.
