Since starting in 2015, Airbus BizLab has accelerated 50 startups and 40 internal projects, which have raised a combined € 19.5 million.
his year Airbus has selected twenty-four new startups to join its BizLab for the launch of the fourth accelerator programme, providing a platform to develop previously untapped technologies and ways of working in the aerospace sector.
“One of the main criteria used in the selection process were the synergies between the startup projects and Airbus’ innovation strategy” said Airbus in a statement released earlier this week.
The aim of this six-month programme is to encourage the innovation of new technology, by providing a platform where startups and Airbus entrepreneurs can readily convert their ideas into a sustainable and successful business.
These startups will interact with the four bases of Airbus, in Madrid, Toulouse, Hamburg and Bangalore, where they will receive support from an international team of experts from various fields, access to coaching staff and networking opportunities.
The 24 startups selected in the four BizLab campuses are as follows:
- AVE (France): Develops chimaera polymers by using molecular grafting technology.
- Caddie Engineering (Bulgaria): New water-based air filtering technology for all biochemical and mechanical pollutants.
