In the burgeoning field of space tourism, a novel collaboration marks a significant milestone. The 100 Fundadores, a global community of diverse industry leaders known for their appreciation of luxury and exceptional experiences, has partnered with IFG Capital to invest in Space Perspective. This investment represents the Fundadores' first foray into the space industry, aligning with their pursuit of unparalleled experiences.

Space Perspective is setting a new standard in space tourism, offering the first carbon-neutral spaceflight experience. Its innovative approach involves a pressurized capsule, lifted by a SpaceBalloon, designed to carry eight Explorers to the edge of Earth's atmosphere. The journey promises unparalleled safety, accessibility, and luxury, featuring the largest windows ever flown to space. Amenities include a Space Spa, a world-class culinary program, high-end products, plush seating, and Wi-Fi, ensuring a unique and opulent experience while admiring our planet's beauty from the brink of space.

The partnership between the 100 Fundadores and IFG Capital in Space Perspective is spearheaded by long-time friends and business collaborators Oscar S. Garcia, Chairman and CEO of InterFlight Global Corporation and IFG Capital, and Christian Altaba, Founder of the 100 Fundadores. Their previous ventures include guiding a satellite technology and manufacturing company from its startup phase to trading on the NASDAQ within four years. This new investment venture into Space Perspective not only broadens the Fundadores' portfolio but also taps into the anticipated multi-trillion-dollar economy of space tourism.

Christian Altaba emphasized the rapid changes in the world, highlighting the need to adapt and navigate the forthcoming challenges and opportunities. He views the investment in Space Perspective as a unique chance to access the burgeoning space tourism industry. This venture is expected to foster collaboration, co-branding, and strategic projects between the 100 Fundadores and Space Perspective, further enriching the luxury experiences available to their members.

Adding to Space Perspective's allure, the company has announced a partnership with Mercedes-Maybach. This collaboration will see the new all-electric Maybach transporting Space Perspective Explorers to and from their spaceflights, enhancing the luxury experience from start to finish. Talks with additional brands are underway, aiming to elevate the explorers' experience further and cement Space Perspective as the quintessential space lifestyle brand.

Oscar S. Garcia lauded Space Perspective not just as an investment in the fast-growing space tourism sector but as an experience that fundamentally changes explorers' perspectives on the world and humanity's place within it. Space Perspective's Founder and Co-CEO, Jane Poynter, expressed pride in having the 100 Fundadores join their diverse investor portfolio, emphasizing the goal of making space experiences more accessible and changing global perspectives through their ventures.
