Opportunities abound: agritech, security, small object delivery, videography, 3D capture, journalism, oil & gas, and more. And yet the industry is so clearly in its early phases – many technical components likely to be ubiquitous in a mere few years are yet to be developed: standards for battery swaps and charging, spline based path and camera planning, “see and avoid” ADS-B, realtime outdoor collision planning and terrain cacheing, etc…the annual canonical conference of technologists in the space, DroneCon, doesn’t even have a website – it takes place in a classroom in Boulder. It feels obvious there will be an explosion of interest and economic opportunity here within the next year or two.
That’s why it made sense in early 2014 to start the world’s first drone fund. Find out more at drone.vc.
