Embraer announced that it is forming innovation teams in Silicon Valley and in Boston, in the United States. The objective is to explore business opportunities in the future of air transportation, with the collaboration of startups, investors, academia, and corporations. The team will seek partnerships that enable new business models and technologies. Operations will begin this month.
Giving us some background on the project is Mr Antonio Campello, Embraer’s Director of Corporate Innovation. We spoke with him by phone.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
