Involve Space, a pioneering startup in the aerospace industry, has marked a significant milestone in its history with the inauguration of its new headquarters and launch site in Fino Mornasco, Como. This expansion signifies a major step towards strengthening its business operations and consolidating its position in the sector.
Involve Space offers aerospace solutions through a customizable stratospheric pseudo-satellite for Earth observation, defense, and telecommunications missions, positioning itself as the sole Italian provider and one of the leading companies in Europe.
Territorial Expansion into Denmark and the USA
Over the past few months, Involve Space has made significant strides in its global expansion efforts.
In September 2023, the company initiated operations in Denmark, with Chief Operating Officer Claudio Piazzai spearheading this initiative. This strategic move bolsters Involve Space’s European presence and opens up new business opportunities in the Scandinavian region.
Furthermore, the internationalization program in the United States saw Involve Space selected by the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Space Agency to participate in the epicenter of the global aerospace industry in Houston, USA, for five weeks of networking and matchmaking with investors and industry stakeholders to advance the company’s expansion process.
With CEO Jonathan Polotto and Chief Innovation Officer Alice Fontana at the helm, the program represents a significant recognition of Involve Space’s expertise in innovative aerospace technologies.
Successful Closure of €500,000 Investment Round
In conjunction with these significant developments, the Company announces the successful closure of its current €500,000 investment round.
This capital injection aims to further enhance the company’s capabilities in developing cutting-edge aerospace technologies and accelerating its growth in the global market. “Involve Space extends its gratitude to investors and partners for joining this exciting phase of growth”, said the Company on Wednesday.
Inauguration of New HQ and Launch Site
The highlight of this expansion is the inauguration of Involve Space’s new headquarters and launch site.
“We started in a shared coworking space in Milan, then moved to Erba, in the province of Como, where we had 150 square meters of offices to get serious. In Fino Mornasco, we now have laboratories and facilities for testing and launching, covering approximately 500 square meters in the most beautiful setting one could wish for: the Como region”,
CEO Jonathan Polotto recounts, recalling how he began with rudimentary experimental launches when he was still a teenager, eventually building a team with strong technical and entrepreneurial components capable of innovating the industry.
This event, scheduled for Thursday, October 5th, by invitation only, will provide participants with the opportunity to explore state-of-the-art facilities and the latest developments from the company.
The inauguration of the new headquarters and launch site represents a crucial moment in Involve Space’s growth: “The company is eager to share this success with partners, clients, and the local community”.
