Seraphim Capital has launched the world’s largest ever, early-stage, space-sector venture fund.

Seraphim will focus on investing in both downstream (software), and upstream (hardware) opportunities, and will also look at technologies that have potential space applications such as robotics, nano-materials and artificial intelligence including those which rely on satellite data such as drones.  The fund will also help fill the funding gap that often exists when a space company or start-up first enters the market. 

Seraphim Capital is looking to invest £80m by Q2 of 2017 and is backed by a £30m investment from the British Business Bank (made under its Enterprise Capital Funds (ECF) programme) alongside smart capital from leading international space companies, family offices and individual investors.
