Hyderabad, November 28, 2017: Boeing announced the launch of the Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge 1.0 to energize aerospace innovation in India. The challenge is a collaboration with T-Hub, India’s fastest growing startup engine.

The Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge is aimed at attracting the best Indian startups to propose disruptive solutions to tackle complex challenges in the areas of autonomous and unmanned systems, advanced manufacturing, industrial IOT and automation, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Entrepreneurs will be invited to present ideas on select themes that include drones and data application, factory productivity, supply chain, aircraft maintenance and services, passenger experience, defense, commercial and industrial uses.

“The Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge 1.0 is our attempt to channelize India’s incredible talent and entrepreneurial energy for the future of innovation in aerospace and related areas,” said Pratyush Kumar, president, Boeing India. “The Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) provides a perfect backdrop for us to unleash a wave of innovation, both within and outside of Boeing.”

“We are happy to be working with Boeing to identify the right startups and entrepreneurs for the Boeing HorizonX Challenge” said Jay Krishnan, CEO T-Hub. “In today’s age, innovation is fostered by collaboration rather than competition, resulting in co-creating possibilities for the future and a win-win partnership between startups and industry. T-Hub is playing an important role in bringing together the best companies and startups to work with each other, resulting in the most innovative and practical solutions.”

By leveraging the power of the world’s largest aerospace company, Boeing HorizonX globally invests in new business ventures, seeks opportunities through nontraditional partnerships, and assesses disruptive innovations and business strategies. The Boeing HorizonX Ventures portfolio includes investments in autonomous systems technology, wearable enabled technologies, augmented reality systems, hybrid-electric propulsion, advanced materials and artificial intelligence.

“Boeing has a vision to encourage a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem around the world, driven by our belief that innovation happens everywhere,” said Steve Nordlund, vice president, Boeing HorizonX. “We are proud to work with T-Hub and support Startup India to help local entrepreneurs further India’s potential to help define the future of aerospace.”

The 22-week long challenge kicks off today and will be open to startups across the country. Regional outreach events at T-Hub centers will be organized in Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Chennai, followed by final selection in Hyderabad. The finalists will receive funding to participate in a three month accelerator program at T-Hub, where they will be mentored by Startup India, Boeing subject matter experts and industry experts to shape their ideas.
