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.
With another $7.2B invested in the quarter, VCs invested $17.1B into 328 space companies in 2021, accounting for 3% of total global venture capital flows. This beats the previous annual record year of $9.1B, set in 2020.
Over the last 10 years, there has been $258.4B of equity investment across 1,688 unique companies in the space economy, led by investment in the U.S. and China.
The majority of investment dollars YTD have gone to Late Stage rounds, however 74 early stage rounds account for 62% of all rounds closed, representing nearly $0.8B of investment and a healthy front of the funnel.
