Beyond B2B: Connecting for Growth
April 4, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
What is Beyond B2B?
AIAA’s Beyond B2B event is more than just the average business to business matchmaking/networking program. The goal is to connect entrepreneurs and small businesses from all industries, including those from outside of the aerospace industry, with medium and large aerospace and defense companies. As these individuals/smaller firms tend to be on the cutting edge of innovation, large businesses/prime contractors are looking to them as potential subcontractors, partners, and collaborators.
