Innovation and an agile methodology are two of the guiding principles that drive the success of our research and development process at Kepler. These principles help us to maintain a high level of adaptation to the challenges of designing, building and launching satellites to space.
A steady expansion of tourism, resource exploration, shipping, and scientific research within the Arctic and on Antarctica has increased the demand for reliable and affordable polar connectivity. Since fiber cables and cell towers are not an option, and GEO satellites fall behind in terms of service quality, availability, and competitive pricing, LEO nanosatellites might seem the best alternative to connect the Earth’s poles.
Fueled by recent technological advancements and a growing demand for connectivity, low earth orbit (LEO) nanosatellites, are poised to change the way our world communicates altogether.
Transforming KIPP from ink on a whiteboard to an orbital data hauler in the span of a single year required overcoming tremendous obstacles. With a team of a few more than a dozen, what we’ve lacked in experience we’ve made up for with a liberal dose of whatever else we could find.
After one year and two months of constant iteration on the Master Plan Part Un, we’re excited to announce that we’ve earned the backing of some incredibly talented people. Brad Gillespie and the team at IA Ventures led our oversubscribed 5M USD seed round. This allowed us to attract some really great investors namely, Techstars Ventures, Liquid 2 VC (NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana’s fund), SK Ventures, Zelkova Ventures, Plug & Play Ventures, V1 VC, Globalive Capital, and BDC
