OUR MISSION

To connect people and companies who are passionate about advanced tech platforms with the plans, policies, programs, and information they need to succeed.

OUR VISION

To be the premier international resource within the advanced tech ecosystem, developing policy, planning and programming solutions to fuel the innovation that will forge a better future for us all.

OUR VALUES - 3Ps

The idea of the 3Ps - Purpose, Passion & Purity originated from my TedX  "Life and leadership, from a Lawyer". The 3Ps inspired the original company name, P3 Tech (albeit different Ps - People, Platforms, Policies) and continue to inspire everything we do in this company.  The 3Ps have become our core values.

  • Purpose - Laser-focused on the mission - We move the UAS/AAM/UAM market forward by providing an unsurpassed quantity and quality of information that lifts global companies and individuals who are making a difference

  • Passion - Living out what moves us, what matters - We educate and advocate about the issues, topics & causes that are meaningful to us and the global tech industry - equality, diversity, inclusion, innovation, law, regulation, policy, professional development, infrastructure, safety, national security, homeland security, and leadership

  • Purity - Authenticity always - We stay true to who we are and the virtues believe in, as we drive change and progress for our clients and the global industry - commitment, cooperation, diligence, excellence, honesty, honor, integrity, loyalty, justice, reliability, respect, responsibility, service, truth and trust
