Space Technology & Investment Forum Underway - Two Days of Insightful Presentations
The power of success in our broad range of industries is highly dependent upon having the most reliable and up-to-date information from subject-matter experts to help businesses gauge the correct pathways through the miasma of challenges that face today's satellite and space entrepreneurs and leading companies.
One major trade event that assists with these endeavors is Space Foundation's Space Technology and Investment Forum that is being conducted from August 30 to 31 at the JW Marriott, Union Square, in San Francisco. Visionary, to say the least, and highly insightful.
This event presents a rich platform for speakers from well-established firms as well as offering eight notable startups a forum within which they can present their technologies and ensure attendees are aware of their leading efforts.
