Nabhdrishti Aerospace raises pre-seed round led by IIMA Ventures

Deeptech startup Nabhdrishti Aerospace has raised Rs 3 crore in its pre-seed round led by IIMA Ventures (Formerly IIMA-CIIE). 

The proceeds will be used to develop fuel flex combustor prototype via thorough testing on the fuel injector and combustor, the company said in a press release. This will enable the company to showcase the proprietary fuel flex technology.

This will be followed by designs within the power range of 300 SHP to 1,000 SHP and above. 

Founded in 2023 by Rohit Chouhan and Arjun Srivatsa, Nabhdrishti Aerospace will design and develop gas turbine engines, beginning with a 350 SHP turbo-prop engine for aviation and power generation use cases. 

As per the company, the micro gas turbine (MGT) engines will be developed and manufactured and will feature fuel flexibility to enable clean fuel compatibility and enhanced efficiency.

The first product, ND 350, will be a 275 KW Turbogenerator. The same core, when coupled with a propeller, claims to generate 350 SHP that can power UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle) and hybrid electric VTOLs (vertical take-off and landing). 

Earlier this month, Bengaluru-based aerospace components manufacturer JJG Aero raised $12 million from CX Partners. In January, Jeh Aerospace raised $2.75 million in a seed funding round led by General Catalyst.
