Spacebit • Founder & CEO

Pavlo Tanasyuk is the Founder and CEO of a UK space startup called Spacebit, which Forbes recently featured as “Mystery Startup”. Initially, he ran a highly successful payment system company MoneXy which he later sold and invested the proceeds in space projects and the setting up of Spacebit. Pavlo’s passion has led Spacebit to sign a joint agreement with Astrobotic to begin commercial and scientific lunar exploration with the first mission in 2021 on the Peregrine lunar lander; marking the first payload from the UK to reach the Moon surface. He earned a degree in Management and Information Systems from LSE and holds MPhil in Technology Policy from the University of Cambridge Business School. Pavlo’s favorite saying is “We have to explore and research the environments and resources of other planets to help us create sustainability on Earth.”
