Can we expect flying-hybrid cars from Volvo in the future? In the wise words of Justin Beiber, never say never. The Chinese company that owns Volvo, Geely, has just acquired the startup known for the world's most promising flying car. Terrafugia is a small American corporation that has developed a roadable aircraft called the Transition, best known for its ability for a vertical takeoff and landing and the fact that the cars are approved for both the road and air. 

A UK-based startup that lets you book a video consultation with a doctor raised $26.1 million in Series B funding. Push Doctor is a health service app that lets you manage, schedule and see a doctor via a video call. This app isn't just for people who want to skip a trip to the urgent care. These doctors can also help you out with prescriptions, chronic pain management and overall health and wellness. 

IKEA announced the launch of its first-ever startup program, IKEA Bootcamp. The accelerator will launch this September in partnership with Rainmaking, a global collective of serial entrepreneurs who bring together startups to scale new businesses. IKEA Bootcamp is looking for 10 startups that want to solve the IKEA big problems. The best part? You can have your meatball and eat it too, cause it won’t take equity in your startup. Startups that want to join can apply until Aug. 6.
