This year, we teamed up with the Accenture Amadeus Alliance to host a pitch night during the opening evening event at Skift Global Forum on September 26, 2018.
The competition is for US-based startups in all funding stages who are developing solutions that can solve the airline industry’s biggest problems. The grand prize winner will get a trip to Dublin to attend a design sprint at the Accenture Amadeus Alliance Innovation Center, $5,000, and access to Skift Research.
Recently, Skift sat down with prominent airline industry leaders to learn where the challenges and opportunities are for emerging startups in the airline industry. Watch the interviews with executives from Accenture, Amadeus, Virgin Atlantic, and Fjord below.
If your startup is working to provide an innovative solution for the airline industry — like developing effective ways to inspire and acquire customers, using intelligent solutions to create exceptional travel experiences, or helping airline operations run more efficiently — we want to hear from you.
