What is the Singapore Aviation Accelerator?

Starburst, the world’s first and only global aviation and space accelerator, has partnered with Enterprise Singapore, Singapore Airlines, SATS, and Panasonic Avionics to jointly launch the Singapore Aviation Accelerator. As Singapore is the aviation hub of Asia Pacific, this aviation accelerator will strengthen the country’s opportunity for future innovation, disruption, and partnerships relating to new technologies. Starburst’s renowned brand strength and reputation as a leader in the aerospace industry combined with Singapore’s innovative nature will contribute to the program’s success and lasting impact on the country’s next generation of aerospace and aviation technologies, the talent pool of aviation and technology professionals, and accelerated startup ecosystem. After rigorous recruiting and screening, selected startups will go through an acceleration boot camp in the format of a 13-week Starburst program with intense, hands-on mentorship. The program will focus primarily on preparing selected entrepreneurs and their teams to successfully raise Seed funding through tailored connections to the Asian VC ecosystem.

This inaugural cohort will focus on addressing eight (8) unique problem statements provided by the program’s corporate partners. Details on these problem areas can be found below. We welcome startups with solutions that fit within the themes below to submit your application. Startups who successfully demonstrate their ability to provide practical solutions to these focus areas while participating in the program will have privileged access to initiating pilot programs with the program’s corporate partners.
