Their system is based on Lidar and offers the drivers a Birdseye view of their plane and vehicle. The idea of Evitado was developed by Alex and his co-founder, who met during their MBA. They made it in the finals in a pitch competition, which gave them their hint that their idea may be much more than just a hobby. “Hamburg is the world’s third-largest hub for the aviation industry, behind Seattle and Toulouse in France” Alexander Kasinec, Co-Founder Evitado Venture Capital FundingEvitado is looking for 750.000 € as a seed funding round. They would like to close the round end of June 2021. “Our system is based on Lidar technology” Alexander Kasinec, Co-Founder Evitado The Audio InterviewThe Audio Podcast will be published at the same time.
