Start-ups at ILA

Innovation begins with courage: ILA Berlin provides start-ups with an exceptional platform to showcase their innovative ideas and establish direct contact with leading companies in the aerospace industry.

In collaboration with the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI), and brigkAIR, we create extensive opportunities for start-ups and SMEs in the fields of Space, Advanced Air Mobility, and Aviation. For the first time, we also welcome the renowned aerospace network Starburst, which will be represented with ten of its start-ups.

Below, we present an excerpt from our offerings for start-ups.

ILA #SpaceConnections

A dialogue between the space community and other industries and departments. This program is ideal for space companies looking to establish contacts with political decision-makers, agencies, authorities, industry experts, research institutions, and a global audience. Space start-ups and SMEs exhibiting in the SPACE HUB will introduce themselves and their application areas in brief elevator pitches. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact directly with the presenting companies.
