Rocket Lab

Rocket Lab’s mission is to remove commercial barriers to space. The company was founded on the belief that small payloads require dedicated launch vehicles and a flexibility not currently offered by traditional launch systems.  Rocket Lab's orbital launch vehicle, Electron, is poised to change the space industry by providing affordable, high-frequency launches for the emerging small satellite market. Rocket Lab is a privately funded company with its major investors including Khosla Ventures, K1W1, Bessemer Venture Partners and Lockheed Martin.
