As many as 13 start-ups out of the 80 shortlisted entries and six teams from Boeing’s research and technology centre have made it to the final round of the Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge.

Launched in November 2017, in association with tech incubator T-Hub, the Challenge aims at promoting aerospace innovation from India.

“The selected start-ups 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 such as IoT and AI,” a Boeing statement has said. The winners will be declared after the teams successfully complete their accelerator programme.
