About the event
Registration for this event has now closed.
Future Flight Investor Office Hours helps facilitate connections between promising innovators, SMEs and start-ups seeking to secure funds and investors in their advanced air mobility (AAM), drones, and electric sub-regional flight technologies and services. These sessions will help to connect the dots between investors interested in opportunities within Future Flight, and promising innovators looking to raise funds.
These sessions are a founder-driven environment where you can:
- Make new connections with investors.
- Gain advice and seek feedback on company growth.
- Gather guidance on next steps to secure investment.
Whilst this isn’t an opportunity to directly pitch for investment, Future Flight Investor Office Hours aims to break down the traditional geographical and structural barriers to raising investment through rapid-fire interactions with investors who can offer useful advice and guidance.
The Future Flight Challenge is a four year, £125m, Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund programme. Future Flight aims to revolutionise the way people, goods and services fly. It will support the development of a novel, integrated aviation system.
