The Space Nation Astronaut Experience Program is a virtual giant leap in making the universal dream of space travel accessible and relevant to everybody on Earth.
“Space Nation’s collaboration with NASA means that space is no longer a distant dream. We hope to inspire millions of people, anyone with a smartphone in fact, to enhance their daily lives through experiencing what it means to prepare for space travel,” explains Space Nation’s CEO Kalle Vähä-Jaakkola.
Space Nation broke records earlier this year when it raised its first million euros through crowdfunding in just 43 minutes. In total Space Nation has raised over €5M in funding since incorporation. Now Space Nation has partnered with Fundable in the US, where it will be accepting up to $2.8M worth of additional investment from others interested in becoming astropreneurs.
“You don’t have to want to visit space or become an astronaut to get the maximum benefit from the Space Nation Astronaut Experience Program. It’s for everybody who wants new space experiences, like AR/VR, and to learn the skills essential to life in the 21st century – teamwork, problem-solving, physical and mental excellence,” continues Vähä-Jaakkola.
A unique business model
The Space Nation Astronaut Experience Program culminates each year with a global transmedia experience in which people can follow the journey of the dedicated trainees, one of whom is selected to travel to space with Space Nation. A filmed documentary series follows the progress of Space Nation Astronaut trainees as they go through real-life astronaut challenges with Space Nation.
Space Nation’s multifaceted media presence and extensive use of interactive techniques offer several revenue streams. These include micro payments for additional benefits in the app, advertising, sponsorship, and tie-in merchandising and franchised programs.
Space Nation is ideally placed to become the gateway to space for consumers worldwide, offering experiences at every level of daily life.
