Seraphim Space, a London, UK-based space-tech focused venture capital fund, has appointed Josephine Millward as its new Head of Research.
Millward brings 15 years’ of experience as one of Wall Street’s leading specialist equity research analysts focused on the Defence, Homeland Security and Technology sectors.
Previously as Director of Research at the Benchmark Company, she followed a wide range of technology companies across the defence and homeland security spectrum, including Space (DigitalGlobe and GeoEye), Drones (AeroVironment), and Robotics (iRobot) – all areas pertinent to Seraphim’s investment focus. Her previous experience also includes J.P. Morgan and the World Bank.
As Head of Research at Seraphim, Millward will be responsible for building on Seraphim’s existing thought leadership within the space-tech market, leveraging the firm’s view of the space-tech ecosystem to produce research-led reports to support Seraphim’s investment strategy.
She will also work closely with Seraphim’s corporate backers including the likes of SES, Airbus and Telespazio, using their insights and market knowledge to help identify emerging technology needs and market trends.
Led by Mark Boggett, CEO, Seraphim is a venture capital fund manager which typically invests at Series A stage into IP-led businesses that have the potential to redefine large existing markets or create entirely new ones.
Over the last decade this has included artificial intelligence (computer vision, neural networks, machine learning), the Internet of Things (software, sensors) and advanced materials (polymers, semiconductors). Collectively, the Seraphim team has more than 100 years’ experience, having invested in over 180 early and growth stage businesses. The firm is thematically focused on the space technology ecosystem through its $90m venture capital vehicle the Seraphim Space Fund and through its soon to be launched Seraphim Space Camp Accelerator.
