General Atomics‘ aeronautical systems business has collaborated with Starburst Accelerator to administer selection committee program for multiple aerospace startup firms to pitch various technology platforms.
Ten aerospace startups presented technologies to industry representatives and potential investors during “The Future Is Now” event that took place Dec. 1 at GA-ASI’s headquarters in Poway, California, General Atomics said Monday.
“We hosted this event as a way to provide aerospace entrepreneurs with an audience of enthusiastic industry leaders who are interested in investing in new technology that will fill critical capability gaps in support of the warfighter,” said Linden Blue, GA-ASI CEO.
The showcase also offered an opportunity for attendees to learn about new innovation ideas and potential applications of the ideas to business expansion initiatives.
France-based Starburst Accelerator aims to help new aerospace defense and security companies secure seed funds from venture capital firms or business angels through the incubator’s quarterly selection committee programs.
