Starburst Accelerator launches in Munich

Starburst Accelerator, the leading European aerospace accelerator, has launched its program in Munich, Germany. The program will be based at the Ludwig Bolkow Campus.
“We are thrilled to bring Starburst Accelerator to Germany,” said Francois Chopard, CEO of Starburst Accelerator. “As we continue to expand our reach across Europe, we chose Munich for its prosperous corporate and investor landscape and the growing innovation landscape. There is great potential here to be a nourishing ground for aerospace start-ups.”
Starburst Accelerator launched in Paris in 2012. The company works with key leaders in the aerospace sector including Airbus Group, Lufthansa Technik, Thales Group, Safran, Liebherr Aerospace, Panasonic Avionics, Air France KLM and many others to participate in the Starburst program. Capitalizing on its success and on the Aerospace industry’s interest in start-up innovation, a second Starburst Accelerator hub was inaugurated in 2015 in Los Angeles.
“We are pleased to introduce Starburst as a new member in the Bavarian aerospace sector. Bavaria as one of the leading aerospace locations worldwide and a hotspot for aerospace entrepreneurship in Europe and the ideal environment for Starburst,” said Dr Wolfgang Hubschle, Executive Director Invest in Bavaria.
