SpaceFund: Funding the Future.
Dedicated Space Portfolio
Utilizing our unique insight and access to this rapidly growing field, SpaceFund is creating a diversified portfolio of the most promising startups in the new space ecosystem.
Technologists, investors, and business builders from the space and finance industries have united to provide the right expertise to create a space-focused venture capital firm.
Groundbreaking Market Intelligence
SpaceFund conducts ongoing research projects to provide market intelligence on the entire space startup ecosystem, with a special focus on market size, creation of new markets, financing, and exits.
Our Portfolio is Growing
SpaceFund invests in visionary yet practical high-growth startups addressing the multi-billion dollar space markets that will both enable and benefit from the space revolution. We don’t invest in “aerospace” and we don’t chase “swarms” of satellites or drones. We largely avoid rockets (but we might invest in space transportation) and we don’t invest in weapons. We value integrity, humility, and pragmatism – even as we seek out the nimble, bold, and innovative. We also don’t “fire and forget” when it comes to investing. We nurture, cultivate, and support our portfolio companies through every stage of their development.
Reality Rating Databases
The SpaceFund Reality (SFR) rating is designed to provide investors, customers, regulators, media, and the industry itself with a quick guide and assessment of players old and new in the various sub-sectors of the space industry. The SFR is structured to cut through the hype and get to the core information – who is who, who is doing what, and what are the chances of their success – in other words: Are they real?

Updates from the Frontier
SpaceFund doesn’t just invest in space, we are active and engaged in the space revolution. From helping form the US and global conversation about our future on the frontier through writings, public appearances and engagement in strategic planning and policy formation, our leadership team is not just on the front lines, we are helping plan where the next fronts will be in an industry that is literally taking off.
We will occasionally post a few of these events and writings. Join our mailing list to stay updated.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first humans to walk on the Moon, you might notice we aren’t celebrating it on the Moon. Why? Having achieved the greatest feat in human history, why is all we have to show for it flags, footprints, and footage?
Building and flying rockets is a prime obsession of many male engineers and entrepreneurs in this industry, and because the space industry is still mainly made up of boys, well, there are a lot of rockets. Too many rockets in fact (and yes, too many boys as well, but that’s a different blog post).
Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon, and space company Blue Origin, received the Space Cowboy Award. The prestigious award was presented by Rick Tumlinson, and awarded to Bezos for his pioneering work and commitment to opening the frontier of space.
