CVCs Investing in Air and Space

Urbanization is a global trend in which the world's population is becoming increasingly concentrated into cities. Urban air mobility (UAM) is an idea at least as old as the Jetsons. But recent developments in electric vehicle technology and the belief that aerial mobility in could be a game changer to solve the congestion problem has stimulated recent investments in UAM. In addition to venture capital, technology companies, automotive OEMs, aircraft OEMs are investing into this area. In this panel, we'll have representatives from CVCs discuss their viewpoints on the opportunities in urban air mobility and the enabling technologies needed for this emerging era of aviation.
