About SpaceQ

SpaceQ is the only independent Canadian media company reporting on the space sector full-time. We tell the stories that matter.

With your support the SpaceQ Team can do more and grow.

March 1, 2018 – It’s been just over a year since we started SpaceQ. We’ve accomplished a lot in that time including publishing over 200 original articles, launching our successful podcast and creating our unique Short Cuts newsletter which is widely read across the country and internationally.

Recently at the Canadian SmallSat Symposium, we told the participants that they we would be providing you, our readers, a way to support us, voluntarily, if you like what we do, and want to see us keep doing it.

SpaceQ like other media outlets needs the support of its audience so that is can provide news and analysis every day on our website, our podcast and this newsletter.

Media companies rely on advertising, subscriptions, and sometimes other revenue generating streams.

At SpaceQ we’ve just started with advertising. And we really appreciate our initial advertisers like MDA and Penguin Books. But in 2018, frankly, advertising doesn’t pay all the bills.

We believe that SpaceQ fills a need in Canada that no one else is doing. That is, covering the space sector on a full time basis.

We could put up a paywall. But that would defeat one of our main objectives. And that is provide open access and to grow our reach in Canada, and globally, so that people come to understand the value and importance the space sector has on their daily lives.

So we won’t put up a paywall

Instead we’re asking you to become patrons of SpaceQ. If you like what we do, we ask you to support us by selecting one of the monthly support levels.

We’ve set some target goals. That includes raising enough funds to hire freelance writers more often and eventually hire full time reporters and a webmaster.

For the last year I’ve not drawn a salary from SpaceQ. And what advertising support we’ve had to date, has gone to pay our monthly expenses and to our writers. While you can contribute at any time, we will be campaigning throughout the month of March.

I hope you see the value in what we do, and support us.
