The private spaceflight company SpaceX, founded by Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, is reportedly looking to raise $750 million in a new funding round.

According to CNBC, the funding round, which is likely to be led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), values the space business at $137 billion. Andreessen Horowitz also backed Musk in his successful bid to take Twitter private.

The new funding round comes after Bloomberg reported that SpaceX allowed insiders to sell at $77 per share. Last year, SpaceX raised $2 billion, including the May funding round that valued the company at $127 billion.

SpaceX’s satellite internet service, Starlink, has reportedly exceeded 1 million subscribers.
