Is There A Markplace for Autonomous Drone Services?
A Marketplace for Autonomous Drone Services
Derek Waleko, CEO of UpSonder
Derek Waleko is CEO and co-founder of UpSonder, a drone startup that provides drone services to businesses around the country ranging from local real estate agents to major energy companies. Its vision is to be a one-stop solution for drone services—which Goldman Sachs estimates will be worth $13 billion by 2020. The company went live in March 2017 and has grown into one of the largest drone marketplaces in the country. As a forward looking company, UpSonder is preparing to integrate autonomous flight services to augment its marketplace for human piloted drones. In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Derek talks about the growth of Upsonder since its launch, how the company plans to offer autonomous flight services and how we can participate in a uniqued funding opportunity to help raise capital for the release of UpSonder Marketplace 2.0.
