Space Capital launched the Space Investment Quarterly in 2017 with the aim of uncovering insights about investing in the space economy, and visibility into what space companies to invest in. The data in this investment report is informed by data released publicly, SEC filings, and investor databases, as well as anonymized and aggregated info from the firm's own due diligence processes.
Now, for the first time, this unique dataset is available in a free, interactive format. Interested parties can drill into each of the defined technology stacks, double-click on certain annual data, or zoom into specific country trends.
In Q3, Space Economy investments rose 17% YoY, totaling $3.0B across 103 companies. Over the last 10 years, there has been $283.9B invested into 1,796 unique space companies.
Events during the quarter resulted in a shift in the world order; France now moves up to the #4 spot for total investment. The top 5 countries receiving investment are now: USA, China, Singapore, France, and India. The latter successfully landed on the south pole of the moon during the quarter while, in a race to beat them there, Russia crashed into the lunar surface.
With 103 rounds closing in Q3, this is the highest in five quarters. Additionally, 24% of global space deals YTD were Series A vs 12% of all global venture deals, demonstrating that space companies are able to secure funding at a higher rate when they hit early milestones.
