Uwingu – A New Way to Fund Space Exploration, Research, and Education

Uwingu, which means “sky” in Swahili, is a small start-up company, a for profit LLC, consisting of astronomers, planetary scientists, former space program executives, and educators who passionately want to create new ways for space exploration, research, and education to be funded.

We at Uwingu are extremely concerned about cuts to NASA, and we’re taking action. We’re planning to launch projects—still under wraps to build a little suspense—that we plan to launch beginning this fall.

Our objective is for those projects to generate a new, private sector funding source of millions or even tens of millions of dollars annually for space projects of all kinds, which we callThe Uwingu Fund. The Uwingu Fund will provide grants to those that propose meritorious projects to us in space exploration, space research, or space education.

First, though, we need to raise at least $75,000 in start-up capital to bring our first project to market, launch its marketing campaign, and fund early operations bills that will arise before we have a strong revenue stream from that project.
