SpaceFund is a new type of venture capital firm, providing near-term liquidity through security tokens and informed investing in a diversified portfolio of space companies.
SpaceFund has brought together these revolutions in NewSpace and digital financial technology by building a renaissance team of leaders in the space, finance, and blockchain communities. This team is bridging the gap between visionary, frontier-enabling space companies, and the large pool of accredited investors who will benefit from the liquidity and transparency of security tokens. SpaceFund’s model for space investing utilizes the best practices from venture capital and tokenization to provide significant benefits to investors and the frontier-enabling companies who need their support.
The model is based on a traditional venture capital limited partnership, utilizing a highly specialized General Partner (GP) to create value for Limited Partner (LP) investors by building and growing revolutionary space companies. However, SpaceFund is also tokenizing interest in the fund, providing investors with the groundbreaking combination of near-term liquidity and informed investing in a diversified space portfolio. As the SpaceFund team builds a portfolio of the most important companies of this generation, they will help these revolutionary companies tokenize their offerings as well – providing a leverage point for the tokenization of space. This model will allow SpaceFund to produce liquidity events for early stage investments well within the 10-year life of the fund, providing confidence that the fund will liquidate on time, even while it invests in frontier-enabling technologies. By aggregating investor capital into a single pool, SpaceFund can provide funding security for capital intensive projects, allowing companies to focus on building the future instead of expending valuable time and resources on continuous, difficult fundraising. The team has deep ties to and partnerships with the leading tokenization platforms, exchanges, and service providers, giving SpaceFund a robust internal ecosystem for the tokenization of portfolio companies. This also puts SpaceFund in the unique position to help drive interest in space security tokens through thought leadership, a deep partnership network, and the listing of SpaceFund tokens across multiple international platforms. This will increase market depth for space security tokens well before portfolio companies need it. Additionally, when SpaceFund helps a portfolio company tokenize, investors can have confidence that these more mature, growth-stage companies are successful, well-run, legitimate investment opportunities and that the tokens being offered will be secure and highly tradable.
The SpaceFund model also helps mitigate the high risk of investing in restricted technologies across borders. While security tokens can help implement transfer restrictions and enforce regulations, tokens cannot help companies and investors navigate the intricacies of foreign investment restrictions that are specific to the space industry.
