Cumulatively, $25.7bn has now been invested into 535 unique space companies since 2009. This past decade, the entrepreneurial space ecosystem has proven itself to be financially robust, increasingly global, and thematically diverse.

Funding in 2019 increased 73% year on year, and surpassed 2017 as the largest year on record for space investment by nearly $700m. Capital was evenly distributed among angel/individual, corporate, and venture capital, with each contributing about a third of total investment.
