Under the mentorship of senior professionals from Airbus the startups built solutions that can be enhanced to meet Airbus as well as industry’s needs.
Neewee and EFLIGHT, two startups accelerated at Airbus BizLab in Bangalore, have signed their first contracts with Airbus and subsidiary NAVBLUE to bring to life their unique innovative ideas in aerospace that are in line with the Indian government’s ‘Make in India’ and ‘Startup India’ initiatives.
Neewee’s solution, called procuSense, will enhance certainty to manufacturing supply chain and procurement operations at Airbus, using advanced analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
EFLIGHT’s trip support solution will offer a comprehensive suite of services that allows business jet pilots to optimize plans for fuel, time, route and weather. The startup has also signed an exclusive partnership with an Airbus subsidiary to jointly address some opportunities in India.
“We are delighted to announce the recent contracts signed by Neewee and EFLIGHT. These partnerships stand as an example of our commitment towards engaging with the entrepreneurial community and creating business opportunities for them, especially with Airbus,” said Bruno Gutierres, Head of Airbus BizLab. “I firmly believe that Airbus BizLab will continue to foster a culture of innovation for a wider aviation industry.”
Siddharth Balachandran, Airbus BizLab Leader - India, said, “The startup ecosystem in India is one of the fastest growing ecosystems in the world. We are excited to partner with two of our BizLab alumni. Both Neewee and EFLIGHT are unique solutions that have the potential to provide significant and long-term benefits to not only Airbus but other big and small businesses on a global scale. The roadmap for the future includes implementing Neewee’s analytics solution in other Airbus functions globally.”
