Axiom Space

Axiom Space is an aerospace manufacturer and orbital spaceflight services company exists to create a thriving home in space that benefits every human, everywhere.

Axiom Space is building for beyond, guided by the vision of a thriving home in space that benefits every human, everywhere. 

Axiom Space was founded in 2016 by Michael Suffredini and Kam Ghaffarian. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas.


Axiom Space operates end-to-end missions to the International Space Station today while developing its successor, Axiom Station – the world’s first commercial space station in low-Earth orbit, which will sustain human growth off the planet and bring untold benefits back home.


Axiom has built a track record of strong strategic partnerships and expanded their successful business operations, with the company not only winning NASA’s port award as the only space company with the privilege of attaching its first commercial space station module to the ISS, but also securing a long-term NASA contract worth $1.26 billion to provide Exploration Extravehicular Activity Services (xEVAS) spacesuits for the Moon and LEO. Guaranteed payments from these task orders total about $370M, increasing with each new task order received.


Axiom Station’s first module is under construction and is scheduled to launch to the ISS by 2026. Additional modules will follow to build out Axiom Station, which will be ready to separate from the ISS and operate independently, in support of customers around the world, by 2031 when NASA plans to retire the ISS.


Axiom is backed by Aljazira Capital, Boryung, C5 Capital, TQS Advisors, Declaration Partners, Moelis Dynasty Investments, Washington University in St. Louis, The Venture Collective, and others. The company raised $350M in a Series C round on Aug 21, 2023. This brings Axiom's total funding to $505M to date. The latest round mints Axiom a unicorn with a valuation of $2.2B post-money.
