As a leading producer of hydrogen-electric aviation products, the ZeroAvia company was designated in June 2021 as a “Technology Pioneer” by the World Economic Forum.
A recent article on the ZeroAvia tells of how the WEF’s 100 new Technology Pioneers are generally new and/or small companies whose innovative use of technology is likely to be of major benefit on the business world, and society.
This year’s community of Technology Pioneers is made up of entries from more than 25 countries, with women comprising more than 30 percent of the group. Among the types of technologies that these pioneering firms are advancing are robotics, AI, biotechnology, blockchain and IoT.
Susan Nesbitt, from the World Economic Forum welcomed ZeroAvia to its community and mentioned how the technologies being developed by the company’s Technology Pioneers will be of great benefit to the world in the future.
The founder and CEO of ZeroAvia, Val Miftakhov, said on elementalexcelerator.com, it’s an honor to be recognized as a Technology Pioneer. The acknowledgement, he says, confirms the uniqueness of his company’s technology.
The Hollister, California-based ZeroAvia is advancing decarbonization in aviation, and says its hydrogen-electric technology can be very useful in helping to reduce transportation emissions.
As a WEF Technology Pioneer, Val Miftakhov will be an invited participant at discussions, activities and events held by the World Economic Forum. For a period of two years, the ZeroAvia company will also be able to take part in WEF initiatives in which leaders from around the world will address various societal and professional challenges.
