MORE INFO ABOUT THE PROGRAMME:
The Airbus BizLab has developed a “hybrid” concept to closely collaborate with startups while allowing smaller organizations to better understand needs and ways of working of large groups.
Over the past year, Airbus BizLab has hosted 15 start-ups and 27 Airbus internal projects in its six month acceleration programme. During the same period, Airbus BizLab has extended its international presences to three locations – Toulouse (France), Hamburg (Germany) and Bangalore (India) – supporting the Airbus strategy to create a global network of business accelerators.
The selected project candidates have access to a large number of Airbus coaches and experts in various domains (technology, legal, finance, marketing, etc.); free office space; a dedicated mentor; learn and act sessions; access to prototyping and test facilities, and a demo day with Airbus decision makers, partners, subsidiaries, customers, and venture capitalists.
