Digital Aero Technologies, a technology-driven holding, established by a global aviation services group Avia Solutions Group, has announced a new addition to the digital family. The aviation companies’ holding has been joined by Sensus Aero, a new-gen aviation software expert.
The Digital Aero Technologies holding has been established last year, with the goal of uniting tech-focused companies, encouraging innovation and sharing of know-how. “We are on a constant lookout for potential additions to our holding,” says Julius Norkunas, Digital Aero Technologies CEO. “We want to cover a wide array of areas and fields - from news and recruitment to smart tools and online platforms – and include a diverse set of businesses, focused on digital solutions and technological advancements.”
Through its corporate venture capital AeroCity Tech Ventures, Digital Aero Technologies have been actively investing in new and already running businesses to encourage and support growth. “There is so much potential for aviation technologies and solutions, thus we are determined to support companies on their innovation journeys. We have allocated 20 million euros to invest in businesses and ideas that have the potential to have a great positive impact on the aviation industry. We have already invested some funds in our new companies and have plans to provide support for development to even more great businesses,” Julius Norkunas shared.
One of such companies, set to receive investment, is Sensus Aero. The newest addition to the holding will receive a 2.3 million Euro investment to reinforce its growth and development plans. “We see a lot of potential in Sensus Aero. We believe that the new-gen solutions, offered by Sensus Aero, tackle many important issues that aviation businesses are facing and can have a great impact on the whole aviation industry. We trust that Sensus Aero can leave an important mark on the aviation industry, thus are a great choice for investment,” says Julius Norkunas.
