We have partnered with BrightCap Ventures, one of the leading pre/seed round ﬁnanciers of innovative companies, to see if we can push the envelope of how companies use ADS-B data.
Selected start-ups will address the various challenges in the ﬁeld of ﬂight safety, ground and ﬂight operations enhancements, aircraft health monitoring, aircraft operating conditions, UAV operations, and anti-UAV systems by utilizing innovative technology solutions that rely on ADS-B data.
The goal of such ventures should be to develop commercial applications of ADS-B data that will enhance aviation safety and/or develop meaningful insights for aviation/aerospace industry leaders. BrightCap Ventures seeks innovative technology companies that address solutions with large market potential.
The partnership aims to identify start-ups worldwide via a rigorous selection process that includes an in-depth review of each potential company, along with the product’s unique value proposition, market size, and potential competitors.
