PURPOSE-DRIVEN INVESTORS

We believe going to Mars is a question of when, not if.

We believe we’ll soon fly clean and hypersonic.

We know that fighting climate change relies on aerial intelligence.

We remember Aerospace & Defense have historically been the proving grounds for scientific breakthroughs.

We see our shared values, civil liberties, and safety being threatened, again.

We want America and our Allies to recover their technological advantage.

We are certain peace and freedom will depend on new deterrence capabilities.

We are determined to play our part, with you.
