Backed by Seraphim Capital, the world’s only SpaceTech Venture Fund, Seraphim Space Camp is a programme dedicated to the rapidly growing SpaceTech start-up sector. 

We’re on a mission to help Seed & Series A SpaceTech companies become sector-specific ‘investment-ready’ and to facilitate commercial relationships with unique space corporate partners.

Programme focus

The Space Camp programme is designed to give sector-specific customer and investor to the teams. This is How we plan to do this:
CONNECT
We’ll introduce teams to the Seraphim global network of corporate investors and key space tech decision makers, in order to facilitate the teams' understanding of this sector-specific market.
CREATE SYNERGIES
We help teams validate their business propositions and offer access to premier space corporate leaders and mentors who could become potential clients and may initiate a ‘Proof of Concept’ project at the end.
TRAIN AND SCALE
We’re here to facilitate an intense experience for startups of learning, testing, measuring, getting investor-ready and all in all, moving a step closer to scaling their business.
BUILD AND TEST
We are asking our top-tier partners to offer access to expertise, use of technology and testing platforms and send sector-specific experts across.
PAY IT FORWARD
Seraphim Alumni will play a key part in the programme, encouraging them pass on their learnings, act as mentors and offer feedback to the new companies, making sure that we create a productive circle of knowledge-sharing
