In terms of valuation, SpaceX now only trails behind Uber (worth $69.8 billion/ £53.4 billion), Airbnb ($31 billion/ £23.7 billion) and analytics company Palantir ($21.3 billion/ £16.3 billion). (SpaceX previously held the sixth spot before Snap, Inc. went public in March.) All five companies are disruptive forces in their respective industries, and also top the world's most valuable startups alongside Didi Chuxing and Xiaomi, as first pointed out by The New York Times.
SpaceX's new financing was disclosed in public filings that were obtained by Equidate, a marketplace for private company stock.
Progress will benefit immensely from the recent funding round that amassed $350 million, as a result of this huge injection SpaceX is now worth $21 billion, putting in among the most valuable private companies in the world.
The latest valuation makes SpaceX one of the top five most valuable private, venture-backed tech companies in the United States, joining Uber ($69.8B), Airbnb ($31B), WeWork ($20.8B), and the less consumer-facing analytics company Palantir ($21.3B).
SpaceX, which is based in Hawthorne, California, is known for ambitious plans to establish humanity's first colony on Mars and putting satellites into space.
Rocket manufacturing has always been exclusively the work of governments and massive legacy aerospace companies - like Boeing and Lockheed Martin's United Launch Alliance - that partner with governments.
