This forum will provide a fresh perspective on the rewards and challenges of investing in emerging aerospace technologies. Our panel will feature individuals from a variety of organizations that are actively pursuing investment & acquisition opportunities in aerospace. Their perspective will be informative to investors and entrepreneurs alike, including investors less familiar with the aerospace industry and entrepreneurs seeking growth capital.

Sample discussion topics for both investors and entrepreneurs include:
1) In this unprecedented economic climate, what is the outlook for investment in aerospace?
2) Who are the active investors in earlier stage aerospace and defense companies? What are their criteria?
3) What are the key areas of growth most likely to attract investors?
4) What key technologies are larger companies seeking to acquire?
5) What does an early stage aerospace venture need to do to attract investments?

Sample areas of emerging technology include:
• Next-generation air traffic management
• On-board connectivity
• Alternative fuels
• Unmanned aerial systems
• Commercial space transportation
