The accelerator programme is co-organised by BizLab, Airbus’ global aerospace accelerator, and Make-IT in Africa, a programme by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit German (GIZ), the German agency for international cooperation.

In a statement released on Monday, Anosime Imhoitsike, CcHUB’s communication manager, said the accelerator is open to African start-ups, service providers, and software companies “that are actively working on solutions in Agriculture and infrastructure that are related to remote-sensing technology”.

The solutions include automation, blockchain, artificial intelligence, data analytics, material composites, manufacturing, among others.

Imhoitsike said the programme will last three months and include virtual coaching sessions and other sessions from experts.

“We are excited to announce that CcHUB is the implementation partner for the third edition of Africa4Future, the African Aerospace Accelerator by Airbus and GIZ. Through Africa4future, Airbus seeks to build bridges between the aerospace industry and the different players in Africa,” the statement read.

“The 3-month programme will include virtual coaching sessions, expert sessions with Airbus experts in Europe, connection to industry experts locally, access to Airbus technologies, 250,000 UP42credit, showcase events in Africa and Europe.

“At the end of the programme, the startups (either standalone or as a consortium) will have the amazing opportunity to pitch a project to the leadership team at Airbus and GIZ for possible collaboration with both organizations.”

Africa4Future initiative was launched in 2017 with the objective of encouraging and supporting entrepreneurship in Africa.

Through the initiative, Airbus seeks to build bridges between the aerospace industry and the different players in Africa.
