UK opens Future Flight investment readiness programme with workshops and mentoring

The UK Research and Innovation Future Flight Challenge invites SMEs and startups to join a 10-week programme of workshops, 1:1 mentoring and feedback sessions, and advice from companies and individuals that have successfully secured multiple rounds of investment and funding to sustainably grow their business. Up to 25 companies will be selected to gain a better understanding of the aerospace and aviation funding landscape, prepare investment materials, and feel confident reaching out to potential investors. The objectives of the programme are to:

  • Provide a clear understanding of the investment & investor ecosystem.
  • Support the creation and development of materials to secure investor interest and partnership.
  • One to one coaching, mentoring and advisory sessions.
  • Accelerate the investment journey of future flight SMEs.

The 10-week programme is open to anyone involved in future flight technologies such as advanced air mobility and drones, and will be supported by Starbust, a leading global aerospace and defence start-up accelerator and strategic advisory practice. The programme will include a series of workshops as well as 1:1 touch-points with Starburst to provide you with the insights needed to kick start the investment journey.

Expressions of interest from companies working in advanced/urban air mobility (AAM/UAM), drones, electric sub-regional flight, or enabling sectors. There will be no direct funding.

Participants will be selected based on responses to the application questionnaire.

The programme will begin w/c 25 September 2023, and conclude by 30 November 2023. There will be one session per week, typically lasting one hour.

Applications close 15 September 2023, more details here
