Led by Starburst, in collaboration with UCLA, SCALE is a one-of-a-kind initiative for industry, government, innovators, academia, and investors to accelerate early-stage aerospace startups across the Los Angeles region.
The program is focused on providing innovators the necessary resources to successfully create emerging technology companies that will drive innovation for future commercial space and national security use cases across the entire aerospace value chain. Everything from enabling sensors for autonomous systems to future spacecraft platforms.
Since SCALE’s inception in 2021, the program has graduated close to 40 phenomenal companies and helped facilitate pilot opportunities, partnerships, and both non-dilutive and venture capital funding.
SCALE is backed by federal funding from the Department of Commerce and made possible with support from the State, Congress, LAEDC, the Cities of Los Angeles and El Segundo, and a coalition of federal labs including JPL, MITRE, RAND, and more.
