Our aims

Space Value Foundation is a not-for-profit professional organisation.
We campaign and advocate for a radical rethink of our financial value framework.

A reinvention of the equations that govern the creation, allocation and deployment of money is key to human and planetary sustainability. 
The financial mathematics that underpins our markets and economies is central to transforming human productivity and ensuring its sustainability and continuous expansion across time and space.

We aim to build a global alliance of public and private organisations and institutions that recognise this necessity, and are willing to change and adjust their own practices in order to lead this transformation. A change crucial for our survival and continuous evolution.

Our research, educational, and applied consultancy work are all geared towards one key objective: to hardwire sustainability into our financial value framework and mathematics.  

Space Value Foundation takes its name from the new paradigm of financial value set out by Dr Armen V. Papazian in his 2022 book ‘The Space Value of Money: Rethinking Finance beyond Risk and Time’. This seminal publication demonstrates how our current financial value framework, built around risk and time, has omitted the analytical dimension of space. Space, as our physical context, stretching from subatomic to interstellar space and every layer in between and beyond. Space is left out of our core finance theory, models, and equations.

The Space Value of Money offers an entirely new financial mathematics where space is integrated into our framework and equations. Where our responsibility of impact is central stage. The Space Value Framework shows how financial projection models and formulae can change so that the true impact of investments is factored in from the outset.

Only by changing our understanding and tools with which we design and model  investments in the present and assess their impact on all the layers of space, in the immediate and more distant future, can we stand a realistic chance of achieving sustainability for ourselves and our home planet.

"A million world-affecting decisions are taken daily using financial formulae focused on risk and time - built upon a framework of value that has coincided with a period of human history where we have effectively littered every environment we have come to touch. We need to rethink human productivity, and the logic and equations that define the value, creation, and deployment of money are central to the reinvention. Our mathematics of monetary value and return must reflect our commitment to a sustainable future."

What we do

We work with public and private organisations and institutions who take planetary sustainability seriously. Those who recognise the necessity to transform the space impact assessment of their cashflows. Those keen to discover and assess the true space impact of their value chain. 

Space Value Foundation’s education, training, and consultancy services can help public and private institutions. We translate your sustainability commitments into an authentic space impact measurement and reporting capability and platform. 

How can you help?

You can join us as an institution or organisation, public or private, by becoming a Partner of Space Value Foundation. Your contribution will directly support our campaigning and advocacy work. 

You can also join us as an individual supporter and/or contributor to Space Value Foundation. We are always open to welcome those who recognise the relevance and importance of our vision and mission.

Institutional partners and individual supporters gain advance sight of new white papers, publications and priority access to our events.

Reinventing the financial value framework
A Risk and Time based financial value framework omitting Space as an analytical dimension has driven our species into an evolutionary bottleneck.Our responsibility for impact on all layers of space must be entrenched into core finance equations. This is the only way to address our current challenges and implement a sustainable and continuous expansion of human productivity in time and space.
The Space Value of Money principle
The Space Value of Money principle establishes a bottom threshold of investment acceptability as it requires that investors achieve their positive returns without negative space impact. The Space Value of Money principle requires that a dollar ($1) invested in space has at the very least a dollar’s ($1) worth of positive impact on space.
