Justin Lewis-Weber

Justin Lewis-Weber is an entrepreneur, student, problem solver, and pilot.

He enjoys working on solving hard but vitally important problems from fundamental physics up.

He concentrates mainly on climate change and renewable energy. From an early age, Justin loved building things, and especially flying things, starting with his first helicopter at age 6. When he was 10 years old, he worked on the first computationally controlled multicopters, colloquially known as drones.

Due in part to his work, drones became easy to manufacture and fly, leading to their current popularity. At 12 years old, he started one of the first aerial imaging companies in the world that used multicopters to film real estate and Hollywood movie shoots. At 15 years old, he started Access, Inc., which aims to revolutionize how people interact with metro systems around the world.

At 17, he wrote and published a peer reviewed academic paper entitled Lunar Based Self-Replicating Solar Factory, which proposed making solar panels on the surface of the Moon using macromechanical self replicating systems, resulting in solar panels that cost  0.015% of their terrestrial counterparts. Justin is currently CEO of Empower Earth Inc., a startup currently in stealth mode that aims to solve the fundamental energy paradigm of powered air flight. He is also currently studying Aeronautics & Astronautics and Management Science & Engineering at Stanford University. He is 20 years old.
