Space Angels Network, a national organization of seed- and early-stage investors focused on aerospace-related ventures, has secured its first members from four investment firms, the group announced Wednesday. Joining the Leesburg-based organization are: Esther Dyson of EDventure Holdings in New York; Stephen Fleming of Atlanta Technology Angels in Georgia; David S. Rose of New York Angels in New York; and Ed Tuck of Falcon Fund in California. First launched in April 2007 by Guillermo Söhnlein, the group began seeking investors with a net worth of at least $1 million, who are interested in investing in commercial space businesses such as space travel and micro satellites, late last year. The new investors bring the network’s total membership to 10 with a goal of reaching 25 members by the end of this year. (6/18)
