British satellite scale-up Satellite Vu, founded in 2016, has successfully raised £15 million ($20.7 million), as it looks to ramp up its plans to launch seven thermal and infrared imaging satellites into space that will be able to provide real-time data on how green every building on the planet is.
Satellite Vu’s latest funding round of £15 million ($20.7 million), which was oversubscribed, was led by the Seraphim Space Investment Trust Plc, the world’s first listed Space Tech Fund. Also investing in the round is Draper Esprit; A/O PropTech, Europe’s largest proptech VC; Ridgeline Ventures; Earth Science Foundation; E2MC Ventures and Stellar Solutions/Ford Family Trust.
The funding round highlights Satellite Vu’s rapid growth, with the company having raised its seed round funding of £3.6 million ($5 million) just six months ago.
