Space tech financing is heating up - 430+ companies have raised over $20B in financing, from industry icons like SpaceX to emerging firms like Relativity Space working on 3D-printing rockets and Orbital Insight developing ML-driven satellite analytics.

With such a wide range of ventures entering the sector in launch systems, satellite development/services, aerospace data analytics, space tourism, and space mining, an exponential increase in VC interest and M&A activity in space tech is all but certain within the next few years.

Flagship VC’s like Founders Fund, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Khosla Ventures as well as sector-specific funds like Hemisphere Ventures LLC, and Space Angels are leading the charge towards an interplanetary economy, showing the maturity of venture funding in the space tech sector.
