BIO – Eva-Jane Lark (EVA)

Eva-Jane Lark is a Vice-President and Investment Advisor with BMO Nesbitt Burns, one of Canada’s largest full-service investment firms. For over 20 years, she has provided expert advice on a wide variety of investment and wealth management issues. In 2003, EVA revived her childhood passion for seeing humanity live and thrive beyond Earth. Researching the state of the space industry, she began to consider how to contribute to such a future by taking a more active role. She has presented papers at space conferences, starting with the Investment Financing of Exploration. In that effort, she took a probing look at how historical journeys of exploration had been funded, discovering a number of parallels facing the space exploration community today. She has been an invited speaker, panellist and judge (for several NewSpace Business Plan Competitions) to discuss topics including: financing for new space companies and markets; business accelerators; business case issues facing Space-Based Solar Power as a future energy source; and for her insights as a keen observer of the emerging new space industries. She was among the contributors to the NSSO’s (National Security Space Office) Space-Based Solar Power Architecture Study in 2007, with her work featured as the study’s central business case analysis. She has been both a guest and a guest host on The Space Show and is the creator, author and host of “EVA Interviews: The Business of the new Space Age™”. Her interviews are now appearing in the print and digital versions of  Space Quarterly magazine. Eva-Jane Lark is a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute and holds an Honours Bachelors Degree in Commerce. She is a member of the Management Advisory Board for the Center for Space Power at Texas A&M University (now called SERC – Space Engineering Research Center) and of the Board of Advisors of The Lifeboat Foundation and SPACE Canada.
