InnoTech graduated from SAN Acceleration Program
With a stellar performance, InnoTech systems “graduated” from the 16 weeks program with great recommendations from the airport authority after successful completion of all the requirements of the program. The company conducted live tests in Terminal 2 between gates 33 and 35 and showcased the first prototype to passengers and airport staff. During this accelerator program, InnoTech was provided with business development training that led to the development of a first draft of the company business model and plan. The experience provided our company and personnel the ability to experience firsthand how airports operate, what are the airport selection and procurement processes and information on how to shorten the sales cycle. Even more importantly, the company established connections with airlines, airport executives, and developed a much deeper understanding of the complex environment of the airports and their business operation.
