Following the footsteps of Elon Musk, E2O's founder Sushmita Mohanty, wants his startup to go down in history as the first successful private space company in India. They have big dreams as well, such as wanting to take astronauts to the moon and even Mars. In 2012, the company launched its very first client satellite (the PROITERES-1) using the PSLV.
2. Team Indus
With a history of establishment stretching back to 2010, Team Indus wants to leave lasting impressions in the annals of space launch systems. Rahul Naray, the founder of the Bangalore-based company, has won the financial support of investors such as Nandan Nilekani (of Infosys) and Ajai Choudhary (of HCL). Team Indus achieved their major accomplishment when they won $1 million for participating in the Google Lunar Xprize.
4. Wright Electric
Forget about Thomas Edison's General Electric (who are already leaders in the aerospace manufacturing business), instead, look at Wright Electric - a California-based aerospace startup in the USA. They gained prominence in the aerospace business when they showcased their idea of battery-powered commercial airliners, a very big dream but not so far from reality. Jeff Engler is the company's CEO. He admitted to naming his company after the popular American Wright brothers who pioneered aviation.
Since 2019, the company has been conducting test flights of a 9-seater battery-operated aircraft, which may go into action probably in the early 2030s or even sooner.
The aerospace engineering industry involves the research, design, development, construction, testing, science, and technology of aircraft and spacecraft, and even missiles. However, since technology changes with time, numerous aerospace startups are springing up with groundbreaking ideas.
