2016 Colorado Aerospace Road Trip
The Colorado Space Business Roundtable (CSBR) is visiting communities around the state to:
Meet with local businesses that are interested in becoming a supplier or subcontractor to the larger aerospace companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Sierra Nevada, United Launch Alliance and many others. Opportunities are not limited to businesses that currently work in aerospace. Almost any product or service could potentially have opportunity.
Meet with local officials, students, educators, and anyone who is interested to learn about the impact aerospace has on our nation, state, and the benefits to every community in Colorado.
Meet with students and educators to discuss educational opportunities such as internships and other programs involving Colorado aerospace companies and organizations.
