How can you invest in space as an angel investor, HBSAAL event
Space has been grabbing a lot of the headlines and public interest these past months as the world witnessed billionaire space entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson and Elon Musk making their first concrete moves into space tourism.
Beyond what might seem trivial (space tourism), the incredible accomplishments of SpaceX, Blue Origin and Virgin Galatic spur unprecedented innovation, entrepreneur interest as well as a vast surge of capital for companies looking to expand the space ecosystem further. Data from Space Capital shows investors poured nearly $15 billion into the sector in the first half of 2021 alone across 230 deals, a sharp increase from last year’s annual record of $8.9 billion.
Space was previously the government’s domain. It has now become a ‘Silicon Valley’ type of innovative paradigm, pushed forward by a new type of space racers, driving down the cost of space tech while accelerating innovation’s rate.
Join David S. Rose Ross (founding member of Space Angels, founder and CEO of Gust, and Associate Founder and Founding Track Chair for Finance and Entrepreneurship at Singularity University) and Rob Desborough (Managing Partner at Seraphim Space ) in a discussion moderated by Alder D. Riley (co-founder and CEO of Itemfarm, and founder of Small Steps & Giant Leaps) to discover what opportunities and innovations exist within the space ecosystem beyond rocket launches and space tourism? What are the different ways to invest in the space sector? What investment strategies are suitable for Angels within the space ecosystem?
