#Stay Calm & Drone on! Building the Drone Economy

  • Runway 1355 Market Street San Francisco, CA (map)

Welcome to Startup Policy Lab’s The Policy Series, sponsored by Runway.

Join us for an stellar panel with thought leaders defining the drone industry.

Who doesn't want a drone delivered burrito? But who's going to set up the air traffic control as thousands of drones fly around? Drones are awesome, but government can't be dismissed: Join us as we talk policy, technology, and innovation in the World of Drones!

Topics for the night include:

  • FAA - friend or foe?
  • Navigating regulations - all you need to know about the upcoming federal, state, and local regulations (will you need a license to fly?).
  • Why government is needed - drones mean things are flying around, how can the government create the ecosystem to support innovation and safety?
  • Investing - what are the unique challenges


Appetizers and libations will be provided.
