Third Falcon New Project of 2021

 

World View is our third new Project of 2021

 

The first two, Triller and EvDynamics, were very well received and taken up fairly quickly

 

World View will be our final new Project until the end of Q3 / beginning of Q4, as we have the VOLCON IPO in late July and the Triller IPO in September

Like Triller, World View is an Institutional Offering, where we were fortunate to get a small allocation due to the relationships that we have with Soliton and VOLCON.

Access to an Offerings like World View and Triller are almost never available outside of select Institution Investors on a direct investment basis.  These shares do come up on the secondary market, when they do they are at big premiums to where the Offerings with the Companies directly were done

World View a Ten Year History

 

World View was founded by Astronauts and some NASA Heavyweights in 2012, and has been operating for nearly a decade

 

The Company and their technology boast of having received $75 million in investment from some of the biggest, most successful, VC’s on the planet

 

For nearly seven years World View has run a business for satellite imagery and have contracts with the United States Department of Defense, Raytheon and many other Fortune 500 companies.

 

That satellite imagery business does just under $10 million in revenues annually.

They do not discuss this satellite imagery business is not the play with World View

Space Tourism is the play for the IPO 

 

In June of 2020, after years of commercial operation the Company made the pivot back to their original vision … space tourism … this is where the valuation creation will occur, as the revenue generation from selling tickets to the edge of outer space, will dwarf the revenues from the satellite imagery business

With Space Travel companies commanding tremendous valuations the timing for World View and a World View IPO could not be better

How World View Came to Us

It is highly unusual for a firm of our size to have an opportunity to invest in a World View type of play.

 

To date monies have been invested by some of the biggest and brightest VC’s on the Planet

We were able to secure an allocation, albeit a small one, due to the relationships that we forged from the Soliton .. AbbVie Unit To Acquire Soliton For $550M To Boost Aesthetics Unit and VOLCON Offerings

Investing Alongside Some Private Equity Heavyweights

 The main investor in World View over the last decade has been Accel Partners … they are one of the biggest and most successful Venture Capital Firms in the world, with early stakes in a plethora of tech companies that are household names today.
