Providing startups and scaleups with FREE access to the most innovative corporates in the air transport industry

It’s no secret that startups and scaleups can find it difficult to access and engage with the corporate organisations that could benefit from the products and services they offer. Although there is generally a will among corporates (such as airlines and airports) to engage with startups and scaleups, the demands of the day job often get in the way.

The FTE Innovation & Startup Hub makes it as easy as possible for startups and scaleups to ensure that they are on the radar of the companies whose businesses they can help to transform.

More than 350 startups and scaleups are already listed on our online startup database and more than 80 of them have pitched to our Corporate Partners at in-person and virtual events. Join for free today to help boost your business prospects.

Startup acceptance criteria:

FTE’s focus is very much on the products and services that have been created for airlines, airports and their closely held partners. Since 2018 we have been building the largest air transport specific startup portfolio in the world, with a focus on the following areas: Inspiration & Booking, Airport, Inflight, and Pre- & Post-Travel. If your startup or scaleup has something to offer in any of these areas, please get involved for free.

The FTE Startup Hub is open to any startup or scaleup worldwide that is Series B or earlier, with sales of less than €2 million, and founded within the last 10 years. Please note, if your startup or scaleup is a subsidiary or spin-off of a larger company, the parent company must also meet this criteria.

We look forward to working with you!
