Headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Paris and Tokyo, Airbus Ventures is a fast-moving, early-stage venture capital company that independently funds and supports start-ups impacting the aerospace industry. Airbus Ventures has proudly helped inspiring innovators reach new dimensions of achievement since 2015.

Mission

Airbus Ventures gets sight of extraordinary start-ups that are destined to redefine the aerospace industry. Because it operates independently from Airbus, Airbus Ventures can co-invest with traditional top-tier venture-capital firms, meeting their expectations for financial discipline, speed of diligence, execution and robust returns. The result is much more relevant business value to Airbus and its portfolio companies.

Projects

Airbus Ventures invests in start-ups working to advance aerospace solutions on a variety of topics, from autonomy to industrial efficiency. Its portfolio’s success rate is extraordinarily high: Airbus Ventures can mitigate business risks by ensuring its due diligence process is rigorous. This meticulous approach is highly attractive to partnering venture capital funds.
