Aerospace and Defense manufacturing start-up Jeh Aerospace has raised $2.75 million in a seed round through a strategic partnership with VC firm General Catalyst.

The round also saw participation from aerospace industry veterans, including Pratyush (Prat) Kumar, former President, Boeing India, and Dwarakanath (Dwaraka) Srinivasan, former CEO and MD, Airbus India.

We have found strong traction with global customers, helping them improve delivery and supporting their growth needs,” said Vishal Sanghavi and Venkatesh Mudragalla, Jeh Aerospace Co-founders.  

Moreover, according to Anand Chandrasekaran, Partner, General Catalyst, the company’s strategic focus on addressing the critical challenges faced by Tier-2 and 3 aerospace suppliers in the US through leveraging India’s dynamic labor pool and manufacturing strengths in the India-US corridor is commendable.
