When people ask why we are so driven to help startups get into the space business, here is what we say:

Planet Earth is at the brink of an era of exponential growth in space technology in 2017++, when startups with backing from Google, SpaceX, etc., will launch to the Moon, and Mars, and beyond.  The private space industry (“NewSpace”) is flourishing globally to the tune of $250 Billion per year and expected to grow at 9% per annum* in the next few years. Singapore is in a unique position to leverage local expertise in MedtTech, IoT and FinTech to serve as a local hub for space innovation.

To draw a piece of the NewSpace venture to Southeast Asia, Bhattacharya Space Enterprises Pte. Ltd. (BSE), has launched the space startup ecosystem in Singapore.  BSE is in a unique position to offer startup mentoring through NASA and our global network of space technology experts.  

We are actively seeking funding to support startups in a number of space-related verticals, including MedTech, communication, and environmental conservation.
