From their About Page ..
  What is Uwingu? We’re an LLC that will sell Internet products (apps) in the space arena to accomplish two objectives—to better connect people to the sky and space exploration, and to fund space research, education, and exploration projects around the world from the proceeds on those projects. As far as we know, there has never before been anything like this—a private company whose mission is to create a new way to fund space activities.

they have several corporate sponsorships ($1000 from XCOR, Lockheed Martin, Ball Aerospace, etc)
