Based in Baar (Switzerland), the company engages with stakeholders to empower the new space sector. It is our core belief that innovation in the sector will lead to greater attainments. Indeed, the underlying technologies of the sector have a potential commercial viability in many aspects of our daily lives whether we are on planet earth or terraforming Mars. As an example, without space we would not have GPS today.
Space 2.0 companies are challenging legacy players for more than $250 billion in annual global revenues. The sector has witnessed more than 90 deals and more than $3 billion in investment in the past year alone. This makes the investment relevant for a large untapped pool of non-core space investors.
It also comes as corporate investors, institutional investors, family offices and HNWI are taking a more active role in their tech investments and prioritizing direct investments in deep tech.
Yet, there are many challenges that the sector faces that only a value-sharing approach can overcome.
Through various initiatives, we empower the ecosystem and allow experts to champion opportunities in the various space verticals - bridging the gap between investors, entrepreneurs, advisors & experts, and public organizations.
