Steve Wozniak has co-founded Privateer Space, a new company designed to "keep space safe and accessible," though very few details have been released.

Famed Apple co-creator Steve Wozniak has now co-created a new company, but so far has only teased what Privateer Space is meant to do. "A Private space company is starting up," he announced on Twitter, "unlike the others."

The company's website says little more, with a note that reports "we are in stealth mode." Privateer Space will be represented at the AMOS Tech 2021 conference in September, which runs from September 14-17, 2021, in Maui, Hawaii.

Woz did post a YouTube teaser trailer which, over the course of a minute, aims to conjure up an atmosphere more than reveal any news.

"Together, we'll go far.," it says. "We'll look out for one another, solve problems together. This isn't a race. It isn't a competition or a game. We are not one person, one company, one nation. We are one planet."

"We are explorers," it continues. "We are dreamers risk takers, engineers, and Stargazers, we are, aren't you, and it's up to us to work together to do what is right. So here's to taking care of what we have. So the next generation can be better together."

Despite having long left Apple, Steve Wozniak continues to be outspoken about the company. Most recently, he said he backs the right to repair that Apple has opposed.

As well as co-founding Apple, and now Privateer Space, he has previously launched "Woz U." Founded in 2017, it was a programming boot camp which reportedly had issues over quality, and also legal problems over its name.
