Join the Silicon Valley Space Center (SVSC) and become an integral part of a unique and proactive coworking group at the forefront of the growing NewSpace industry in the Silicon Valley.
SVSC members are innovative forward-leaning, advanced thinking engineers, scientists, hackers, technologists, business developers, spacers, and others driven to encourage the growth of NewSpace startups. You do not need a membership to attend an SVSC meetup, or to pitch a business or technology to us. However, if you find yourself attending meetings frequently and partaking in the communal snacks, please become a member. Membership dues go toward keeping our brains fueled and events happening.
Members now receive copies of The Lurio Report
, updates from the Commercial Spaceflight Federation
, and other sources as SVSC is able to provide them.
SVSC offers three levels of regular membership: Individual, Student, and Corporate. In addition, there are Silver and Gold levels of sponsorship. These are briefly summarized below, and described in further detail in the SVSC Membership Levels table
Types of Membership
All members receive:
- discounted registration to SVSC-sponsored workshops, hackathons, and other events.
- updates from the Commercial Spaceflight Federation
- monthly news from SVSC on trends, technology, and resources.
Individual membership is for those that would like to lend their skills to the SVSC, accelerate commercial space startups, and take part in the meetings and events.
In addition to CSF and SVSC updates, individual members receive copies of The Lurio Report
($150 value), and a one-year subscription to NewSpace Global market data service on the commercial space sector ($395 value).
Like Individual members, corporate members have access to CSF and SVSC updates, and The Lurio report. Corporate members can designate two persons to access the NewSpace Global service. In addition, a limited number of free tickets are available for VLAB, the Bay area chapter of the MIT Enterprise Forum. Corporate members also can have their business plan and related materials reviewed by SVSC mentors.
In addition to CSF and SVSC updates, Student members gain special student access to the NewSpace Global market data service. To qualify, students must be enrolled full-time, and have a valid student e-mail address.
