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 performs ongoing research on the entire space startup ecosystem, with a special focus on market size, creation of new markets, financing, and exits.
A Portfolio of Rising Stars
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.
What are the Blue Ocean strategies in space? Where are the biggest profits yet to be made? Where is the highest growth potential? What markets are being underserved? What emerging markets aren’t being served at all? These are the questions that will lead you to own your highly profitable Blue Ocean strategy.
No mother likes to hear that their baby is ugly. And let’s face it, as an entrepreneur, your company is your baby. So, when an investor tells you that your valuation is too high, it hurts. It’s as if the investor is saying that they don’t see the value you’ve created, or as if they don’t appreciate all your hard work. It’s like someone telling you your baby is ugly.
Few founders realize the importance of their ‘pitch’ deck and its actual intended purpose. News flash! By the time an investor reads your deck, they’ve already been pitched – either through your intro email, on a phone call from a co-investor, or in a presentation you did that prompted the investor to give you a business card. The ‘pitch’ deck should more appropriately be called a ‘deal deck’ and is not about the pitch. It’s actually about due diligence.
