Doors open at 6:45pm, game begins at 7:30pm.
During the event, participants become an investor for the evening, and take a (simulated!) gamble on the drone start-up market. In this interactive experience, teams of investors will hear pitches from entrepreneurs—four ingenious start-ups in need of funding. Players will ask questions, assess the potential value of their technology and decide how much their team is willing to invest. The investment opportunities are based on actual case studies—some never got off the ground, some received funding and took off, and others failed. Team’s bank accounts flourish or fail as investments cash out or crash. The final event will take place on September 22.
This event is open to guests ages 21 and over. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.intrepidmuseum.org.
The event is a part of the Intrepid’s programming tied the Drones: Is the Sky the Limit? special exhibition. It is the first major museum exhibition on pilotless aircraft in the United States. The large-scale exhibition, located in a 6,000-square-foot custom-designed pavilion on the Museum’s Pier 86, explores the history of drone technology, from its modern origins in World War I and its military development to its current applications in solving complex humanitarian and commercial challenges.
