Welcome to the end of 2019 — we made it!

It’s been a really big year for us at Spaceship, which means we haven’t always had time to take a minute to reflect on everything that’s happened. So, what better time than now, in our last newsletter of the year, to look back at the latest launches and landings, and a few of the bigger or more interesting moments that have taken place in 2019?

We got real with the money talk
Our Real Money Talk series has been a real winner this year. We’re curious creatures by nature, so who wouldn’t want to hear Australians, from all walks of life, chat about their personal finances? Every talk has been a hit, but the most popular this year was with Zoe (name changed), a 29-year-old business woman in Sydney who was looking to buy a house and slowly but surely figuring out how to build her wealth.

Our investment team did some deep dives
We don’t just invest in companies, we talk about them. This year, our investment team started doing some deep dives into the companies in our Spaceship Voyager portfolios. Our look at Afterpay was a hit, as was our analysis on Disney.

The Spaceship Voyager app got a brand new look
Earlier this year, our Spaceship Voyager app turned one! And then it got a makeover! (We feel like proud parents at Spaceship HQ, honestly.) It wasn’t necessarily the biggest moment at Spaceship this year, but it was certainly a little exciting.

Office Hours were a go!
If you’re in Sydney, you should come on down to our regular Office Hours events. You can have some beer and pizza on us, but even better, you can chat with the Spaceship team about startup life, check out our library of books, and discover where the magic happens.

We bought and sold some stocks
This quarter, we made just one change to our Spaceship Universe Portfolio. We added Life360 and we removed Link. You can read more about these changes here.

We started working on some big launches
We have started getting ready for some major launches in 2020. We can’t give the game away early, but we feel pretty confident you’ll be very excited by what’s coming up in the new year.

And finally, our inbox, well…
Every month, we receive hundreds of messages from customers, and honestly, it reminds us why we’re all here, at Spaceship. We’re on a mission to enable you to invest in your future, so you can live the life you want to live. And that’s a very personal thing. So, we love that you share your journeys with us. You tell us when you love something, you tell us when you’re not so pleased with our language choices, you write in with your stories. It’s awesome.

And that’s a wrap!
