The space industry has experienced a surge of interest from investors and the financial sector in recent years, as technological advances have rapidly expanded the accessibility of space and enabled new business models. However, the industry remains highly complex and is closely monitored by governments due to the national security implications of many space systems. Any new participants in the space industry must quickly become familiar with the technical requirements and regulatory responsibilities that accompany the opportunities for profit. For some businesses, the potential returns from space are practically unlimited, but only with the appropriate guidance can this potential be realized.

We provide data and consultation to startups, angel investors, venture capital firms, and institutional investors, as well as tracking the performance of publicly traded companies active in the space industry.

Space Investment Services was founded by Micah Walter-Range, an experienced space industry analyst and commentator. In his previous role as Director of Research and Analysis at the Space Foundation, a globally recognized nonprofit working to advance the use of space, Micah led development of all research projects and publications. With his team of in-house researchers and external contractors, Micah produced 12 editions of the Space Foundation’s annual flagship publication, The Space Report: The Authoritative Guide to Global Space Activity. The report is used as a reliable and informative reference source by space agencies, policymakers, industry executives, and the media throughout the world.
Micah has also authored papers on space-specific topics such as the impact of export controls on the U.S. space industrial base, and cross-sector subjects such as the role of space technology in aviation. As a leading expert on the global space economy, Micah has been quoted by The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, NPR, Space News, ABC News, Bloomberg, Entrepreneur, The Economist, and many other media outlets. He also regularly briefs government and private-sector audiences on technological and economic developments in the space industry.
