Hatchery Alumni Speaker Series: Nikola Kostic

Nikola Kostic, Founder & Design Lead at Aeroflux Braking Systems

Nikola Kostic graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Solid Mechanics & Design and a Minor in Advanced Manufacturing. He worked as an Engineering Designer on the design, analysis, and testing of aircraft landing gear components on several aircraft programs, including the Bombardier Global Express, Bombardier Global 5000, and Bombardier Global 7500 ultra-long-range business jets.

In 2020, he founded Aeroflux Braking Systems to develop and commercialize the next generation of aircraft braking technology. Aeroflux is developing wear-free aircraft brakes for business, commuter, and commercial aircraft. Aerofux brakes operate magnetically to stop an aircraft without friction, and therefore with virtually no wear, saving airlines millions of dollars in maintenance and operating costs on each of their planes.

Join us on October 11 to hear about Nikola’s startup journey.

Register here to attend in person (Myhal 370) or online.
