Bruno Gutierres, Global Head, Airbus BizLab, said at the event, “For the last couple of years I have been convinced with the potential and the quality of entrepreneurs in India. I am pleased to see that all these partnerships between Airbus and Indian startups are proving me right.”
Gutierres also commended the robust ecosystem provided by the Indian government for a thriving startup environment.
The Season 3 of Airbus BizLab’s start-up acceleration programme TAKE OFF 2018, also seeks to bolster the Indian government’s ‘Make in India’ and ‘Startup India’ initiatives.
Shruti Singh, Director of Department of Industrial Policy (DIPP), said, “Indian Government’s initiatives about the new tech sector are not about creating jobs — but about creating job creators.” She added, “India’s vision is to support startups and work with MNCs to take Indian startups global and also help the country innovate.”
CATS-GLOBAL was one of ONLY 6 out of 140 Startups selected by Airbus.
