Our Company

Apogeo Space is an innovative Italian startup established in 2015. We are focused on building the first private Italian satellite constellation in LEO (Low Earth Orbit), to provide affordable IoT telecommunication services all over the world, connecting low power and low data rate devices located in remote or poorly connected areas.

In 2016, we expanded our activities to include the development of space hardware solutions, leading us to design and manufacture our own product line of picosatellites.
In 2022, we received a 5M€ round of financing from Primo Space, the first Italian Venture Capital on the space economy business.

We want to support companies outside the space industry in entering the space market. To help them facing this huge challenge, we have developed a proven consulting and management plan with grants/projects for ASI, ESA and NASA, often in collaboration with major research institutions including INAF (National Institute of Astrophysics), INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics), Brera Astronomical Observatory, Bologna Astronomical Observatory and Milan Polytechnic University.
