SpaceX now valued at $100 billion — plus other LA tech news – LA Biz – L.A. Biz

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. has hit a valuation of more than $100 billion, reported CNBC.
That’s a third more than the last time the Hawthorne, California-based aerospace company raised funding this spring with a $1.2 billion round that valued the firm at $74 billion.
The new valuation didn’t come with another round of funding, however, but a secondary sale of $755 million in existing shares at a rate of $560 each.
SpaceX now ranks as the second-most-valuable private company worldwide behind China’s Bytedance, per CB Insights data.
