Growing up, Vance Hilderman dreamed of being in the Naval Academy. He passed all his tests with flying colors, but had less than perfect vision. Because of this, he was told he could only be a navigator. Vance denied the offer and followed his dream of going into aviation elsewhere. Today Vance serves as the CEO and CTO of AFuzion, the world’s largest aviation and safety-critical services companies.
Pursuing degrees in both Computer Engineering and Business, Vance had already had 4 failed businesses before he got it right. His 5th attempt grew into the world’s largest outsourced aviation avionics software development and certification company. He says the failed attempts taught him one valuable lesson: start with more money. He’s since started a few more successful businesses.
