“Funding Your Dream” is a panel discussion with successful entrepreneurs who will provide the audience with an understanding of what it takes to start, grow, and fund an aerospace company.
“Startup founders at various stages of growth will share stories about their path from idea to market,” according to panel host Tom Perkowski. “We discuss how they got started, what issues they face, especially with the pandemic, and the challenges in talking to investors.”
