Alpine Space Ventures is the leading European investment fund manager in the NewSpace sector. We invest in the most promising technologies around space-borne connectivity and data and aim to play a key role in shaping the European NewSpace industry.
Alpine Space Ventures’ unique selling point is the wealth of technical and industry experience our team brings to the table. More than 45 combined years spent at SpaceX and in the European NewSpace ecosystem have equipped us with a deep understanding of complex technical systems and the ability to identify key market opportunities and tackle the most challenging yet promising projects with our founders.
We are avid learners with a strong track record in building and funding successful NewSpace companies. We look for patterns and unseen innovation at the same time. We team up with our founders. As an early-stage investor, we target companies at series-A stage and deploy tickets between €1-5m, with the potential for significantly larger tickets over the lifetime of the company. We deliberately chose to invest into a maximum of 15 companies in order to be able to go the extra mile with each founding team we support.
The space industry is undergoing a radical transformation. In the US, SpaceX has quickly outstripped traditional space companies and become the most valuable private space company in the world. In Europe, we are seeing a surge in the emergence of innovative private space companies that are working on technologies and approaches that have the potential to revolutionize not only the space industry, but also a wide range of other industries including agriculture, automotive, maritime, logistics, insurance, weather, telecommunications, navigation, and energy. These are the types of companies Alpine Space Ventures focuses on.
Alpine Space Ventures focuses on the two NewSpace value chains with the strongest market demand and the shortest way to commercialization: Satellite connectivity and geospatial data.
NewSpace technologies, particularly in the areas of connectivity and data, have not only become political priorities but also crucial tools to build a more sustainable future on Earth and in space.
