Now published is Bryce Space and Technology’s annual Start-Up Space report,.
A few notable findings from the report include:
Start-up space ventures attracted roughly $5.7B in all types of financing during 2019, shattering the $3.5B record that was set in 2018.
2019 was a record year for multiple measures, including a 34 percent increase in the number of start-up space companies receiving investment (135), a 46 percent increase in the number of investors (328), and start-up space deals, which were up 36 percent (150).
For the first time, the number of non-U.S. start-up space companies that received investment (79) exceeded the number of U.S. start-up space companies (56).
Cumulative investment (including debt financing) in start-up space ventures since 2000 totals $27.8B, with more than 60 percent of that investment from 2015 to 2019.
Bryce CEO and Founder, Carissa Christensen, believes that taking annual snapshots of the start-up space financial ecosystem helps the industry to track how it’s changing over time. She stated, “For 2019, the picture was one of continued vitality and dynamism in the sector.”
