🎧 Where to look for the future of aerospace — with Nichola Bates, Boeing


The Tech.eu Podcast is a show in which we discuss some of the most interesting stories from the European technology scene and interview leading entrepreneurs and investors from across the region.

In today’s episode, listen to an interview with Nichola Bates, head of global accelerators and innovation programs at Boeing. She studied law, then spent a lot of time advocating for SMEs in the UK, and ended up joining Boeing to “fix things from the inside.”

As promised in the episode, here’s a link to the call for applications for the Aerospace Xelerated programme: xelerated.aero.

Here are some things we’ve discussed:

🎙 The move from ATI Boeing Accelerator to Aerospace Xelerated — what’s changed?
🎙 Unfair access, but no unfair outcomes.
🎙 How COVID-19 helped increase diversity in the programme.
🎙 How autonomy and AI startups advance the future of airspace.
🎙 Why an aerospace accelerator isn’t looking at startups that actually build aeroplanes?

…and much more!
