Event summary

Cooley is a proud sponsor of the 2024 Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) NEXT Conference. We explored how artificial intelligence and machine learning are automating, enhancing and shaping the solutions of tomorrow across the space, signals intelligence/electronic warfare and unmanned systems sectors. The development and growth of these markets are leading to strategic and financial-sponsored M&A, which adds “fuel to the fire,” further energizing the ecosystem.
