SpaceV is an Italian startup, founded in 2021 with premises in Genoa and Turin.

In April 2022 Space V was accepted as one of few Italian startups hosted by the ESA BIC (Business Innovation Center), recently born in the I3P Incubator of the Turin Polytechnic. Thanks to the ESA BIC services and to the Turin Polytechnic ecosystem, Space V has access to key technology partners who have their premises in the Turin-Piemonte region.

It has a place in the New Space ecosystem insofar as it is engaged in transferring its proprietary Multilevel Adaptive Greenhouse technology from ground to space.
