In 2012, Greg founded OneWeb with the mission of enabling Internet access for everyone. Setting a goal of connecting every unconnected school in the world by 2022, he built a team and designed a satellite constellation to achieve that vision. After the system was designed, in 2014 OneWeb raised over $500,000,000 USD in its A-Round from investors including Qualcomm, Bharti, Airbus, Coca-Cola, Echostar, Virgin and Intelsat, and $1.2bn USD in its B-round with lead investor Softbank. Greg continues to lead the architecture and development of the system looking towards its initial activation in 2019.
