At present I'm trying to build a list of potential sponsors for any project. We can use this as a shared resource for space projects across all hackerspaces.

I myself would like to focus on building the organization responsible for coordinating hackerspace space projects and probably doing marketing to encourage other hackerspaces/universities/organizations to take part and encourage donations via sponsorships, kickstarter, etc which can be allocated to participating hackerspaces
