Space Base: Co Creating The Future Of New Zealand In Space!

Project 2019-09-14 17:16:17 +1200

NZ Space Challenge 2018. SpaceBase Founders Eric and Emeline with Challenge winner.

 

Help us to grow the New Zealand space community, through education, mentorship and content, by supporting our PledgeMe campaign today.

 

SpaceBase’s mission is to catalyze and grow the space ecosystem in New Zealand through education, entrepreneurship and community building.  

 

Space technology has improved life on Earth, and has the potential to solve humanity's global grand challenges. NZ is poised to participate in the global space industry, if it can develop the capacity to do so.

For the past two years, SpaceBase has been passionately running space initiatives in NZ to create pathways for Kiwis to join the global space industry. We intend to give the next generation of Kiwis a road map to guide them on the journey from space enthusiast to space entrepreneur. 

Our efforts to date have been about 90% self-funded.  We are asking you, our community, for funding so that we can continue to deliver our projects for free for another year, develop more educational and mentoring programmes, and build the NZ space community platform further. 

Our Impact

We have run NZ space and aerospace challenges, given space presentations and training, mentored space entrepreneurs, and advised space agency and local government on space strategy and opportunities. We have developed an open-source community and content platform to serve and catalyze the emerging space community in Aotearoa which includes a Space Directory and Events Calendar, and a repository of resources for the Kiwi space entrepreneur. 

 

Challenge Workshop

 

Summary of our Impact for the past 2 years:

  • 100+ separate space presentations, briefings, training sessions, and speaker events
  • 10 startups/entrepreneurs mentored
  • 2 space/aerospace challenges delivered
  • 99 potential Challenge teams/solutions over two competitions generated
  • 70 virtual incubator participants from 18 teams facilitated
  • 8 startups catalyzed
  • 22 incubators across NZ engaged
  • 1 space Meetup group created
  • 3 national/local strategy workshops participated
  • 64 partner organizations collaborated
  • 14 regional Economic Development Agencies engaged
  • 9 universities and colleges engaged
  • 1 community platform with Space Directory and Events Calendar

“They've provided so much expertise that I've struggled to find anywhere else in New Zealand”

- CEO, Peter Toth, Extraterrestrial Power

 

“The contribution of SpaceBase in building bridges between startups, academic, economic, educational and governmental institutions ...means they have created something else that has never been before: A Minimum Viable Ecosystem (MVE) for the Space Industry in Aotearoa! That could be a launchpad for future space-entrepreneurs, curious students and advanced technologists to pick the right set of resources ... to launch their space ideas... “

- Sakthi Priya Ranganathan, JIX Limited

 

SpaceBase Talk

 

The work of SpaceBase continues to inspire young people and those people in education about the opportunities available to them in NZ and beyond. Providing a focused view on cohort of businesses also serves to help people understand future job skills and opportunities.

Final SpaceBase Campaign Update

08/12/2019 at 7:31 PM

Kia Ora Whanau!

The Campaign has now closed.  Thank you for your support in getting us to the finnish line! 
We raised approx $57,000 through The Gift Trust and PlegeMe platforms - over our original target goal!!! We are so thrilled at the vote of confidence in our work here in NZ and the potential to do more with your financial support.  

With the funds raised we will be able to:
  • Continue our educational and community initiatives to grow the New Zealand space community by running meetups and outreach programmes 
  • Continue to deliver presentations, speaker series, and workshops across NZ to schools and academic institutions 
  • Continue to contribute our pro-bono mentorship and advisement program to entrepreneurs and government agencies
  • Continue building our online space content for the NZ space community through webinars, podcasts, training sessions, and resources wiki 
  • Maintain our directory of space industry players and space events to build the NZ space community

Again, a huge thank you from the co-founders of SpaceBase.  We do not take our privilege to stay and serve the space community lightly, and hope to continue democratizing access to space by helping co-create and catalyze entrepreneurial space ecosystems in NZ for years to come.

All the best,
Emeline, Eric, and Rich

Campaign Extended to 8 December, and Funding Goals Update

05/12/2019 at 8:20 PM

Apologies as I thought I had already posted this update yerterday.  

We have been given a little bit more time to rally the community to donate and spread the word.  The campaign has been extended to Sunday, 8 December and we hope this will give you the incentive to support us before the campaign closes.

We are delighted to report that we have raised over half of our original 50k goal directly through the Gift Trust.  We have also received huge support from our community abroad who find it very valuable to contribute to a space ecosystem in NZ. Because of this, we have reduced our funding goal on the PledgeMe Platform to 20k
 
We now only need ~$1,300 to make our goal.   Please help spread the word one last time and lets close the gap to the funds today!
 

Thank you in advance!
Emeline, Eric and Rich!

Update on Total Funds Raised

02/12/2019 at 11:12 PM

We have been quite moved by the outpouring of support from friends and collegues from across the globe. Thank you!!! As part of this, we have also found a new pathway for US charitable donors to donate and get the tax receipts they needed.  This goes directly to a US non-profit receiving the funds on our behalf but unfortunately will not count towards the total of the PledgeMe campaign. 

We will ammend the total funds raised shortly on the campaign page to reflect the total amount minus those that needed US charitable receipts.  If you need a US charitable receipt, please email The Gift Trust at [email protected] and note that you are donating to SpaceBase. 
On the bright side, those funds pledged separately will get to Spacebase no matter what the outcomes of the PledgeMe campaign might be.  
If you have any questions about recieving a US charitable receipt, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Thank you for your support!
