13 startups make it to the last lap of the Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge

Boeing and T-Hub have announced the last lap of the Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge here on Thursday. Launched in November 2017, the challenge aims to discover and accelerate potentially transformative aerospace innovation from India.  

As many as 13 startups out of 80 shortlisted entries and six teams from Boeing's research and technology centre  have made it to the final round of the innovation challenge.

The selected startups and internal teams will now work on perfecting their ideas and concepts to develop disruptive solutions and tackle complex challenges in multiple areas of aerospace, including autonomous and unmanned systems, advanced manufacturing, industrial IOT and automation, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The winners will be declared after the teams successfully complete their accelerator programme.

As part of a showcase session organised for the finalists, global startups associated with Boeing's HorizonX and Indian startups presented their innovations to an audience that comprised of potential customers and investors.  

Boeing HorizonX functions as a pathfinder organisation for Boeing. The team makes targeted investments in new ventures and startups; seeks unique business opportunities for the company's aerospace technology; and assesses disruptive innovations and business strategies.
