Sigari and his partner, Ben Marcus, first met Wood in 2018 at Up.Summit, an annual retreat the duo has been hosting for company executives, investors and founders in the aerospace and mobility industries. Wood was a speaker at the Arkansas-based event that year, which was also co-hosted by two grandchildren of the founder of Walmart Inc. “She was our first investor,” Sigari said of Wood. “She was the first one to say, ‘You guys are on to something here.’”
