This panel will feature prominent investors who have invested in drone-related startups. Not only will the panel cover the venture capital perspective on general industry topics (e.g. commercial viability, FAA / regulation, market timing), but will also offer specific insight into what investor frameworks look like in an industry that is still emerging. What parts of the eco-system are most interesting to VCs? What are investors looking for in a product idea or pitch? How much money should a company raise at different stages? Attend this panel for answers to these questions and more.
