Space Capital launched the Space Investment Quarterly in 2017 with the aim of uncovering insights about investing in the space economy. The data in this report is informed by data released publicly, SEC filings, 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.
There was $6.1B invested in the quarter. Following a record year in 2021, Q2 2022 showed signs of a slowing investment pace being driven by fewer corporate/hedge/mutual fund investors and a return to multi-year venture deployment schedules. Dealcount and investment dropped 35% and 38% QoQ, respectively
Over the last 10 years, there has been $264.0B of equity investment across 1,727 unique companies in the space economy, led by investment in the U.S. and China.
Large late-stage deals continued to set the market direction with $9.5B invested in late-stage/other rounds through Q2 2022. Investment in the top 10 rounds accounted for $7.3B, or 53% of total space investment YTD.
