Founding Partner SpaceFund


Winner of the 2015 World Technology Award, Rick N. Tumlinson has been called one of the godfathers of the commercial NewSpace movement, along with Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson. A world-renowned expert, he spent the last 30 years defining, enabling, and founding many of the core initiatives of the frontier movement, from the private takeover of Russia’s Mir space station to the X-Prize, and the first private ticket to the International Space Station. A six-time congressional witness, his prolific writings set the philosophies and legislative pillars of NewSpace itself. Based on a vision shared by some of the world’s top billionaire investors, and his own involvement and understanding of what is happening in space, in 2018 Rick founded SpaceFund build a new space ecosystem to support and profit from what is about to occur – and to open this new frontier to investors of all types.
