Our Vision

We see a world in which all people have opportunity to participate in the space industry on an equal footing, in accordance with their aptitude and ambitions.

We plan to contribute to this vision by making education and entrepreneurial support available to those who need it most. 

In short, we want to democratize space for everyone.  We believe that outcome is best achieved when as many people as possible have the education and support required to participate in that effort.

Our History

SpaceBase was founded in 2016 by Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom and Eric Dahlstrom.  In 2017, Rich Bodo signed on, the team joined the first cohort of the Edmund Hillary Fellowship, and SpaceBase Limited was founded.

We established SpaceBase, as an LLC, but we run it as an impact organization with a charitable constitution.  Our success is not measured as profit.  Read our Impact Report 2019.  

Today

Today we are collaborating with the space community in New Zealand to:

  • Establish educational programs that we can iterate on and improve.  The New Zealand Space Challenge is an example of that.  We are active in promoting relevant gatherings and space activities countrywide.

  • Build our directory system.  This will allow us, together, to take an inventory of where we are, connect with one another, collect feedback, and plan out our next steps. 

Roadmap

We continue to collaborate and partner with local stakeholders, support space educational initiatives, and establish mentorship and consulting services in New Zealand and abroad to grow a democratized space economy. 

Join us in catalyzing the space ecosystem in New Zealand and beyond. We would love to hear from you. Reach us at feedback@spacebase.co. We're looking forward to hearing from you.
