As the leading Space technology focused venture capital firm, Seraphim is in the privileged position of having a panoptic view of all the innovation that is happening within the SpaceTech ecosystem. During the past year we’ve identified more than 1,200 investment opportunities and have used our Seraphim Space Index to track the 170 SpaceTech companies that have raised venture funding last year.
The breadth and depth of innovation that’s happening within the SpaceTech ecosystem is far richer than many people realise, it's happening across all segments of the market, and on a truly global basis.
We feel that it is important that the true extent of this innovation is captured in a manner that makes it easily digestible for players within both the SpaceTech and Venture Capital communities. It is for this reason that publish the annually updated Seraphim SpaceTech Ecosystem Market Map.
This map is not meant to be exhaustive, there are thousands of start-ups in this domain, but we only show the leading companies, in our view, based on venture funding raised and/or their potential to be a leader in each category. It’s also worth noting that whilst we realise some start-ups are operating across multiple segments of the Space Tech ecosystem, we’ve only included companies in one category. Not every logo you saw in our original map release will still be there, that’s the nature of ecosystem maps as it takes into account new and emerging leaders and M&A activity.
