Led by CB Insights Tech Industry Analyst Nick Pappageorge
As drones become increasingly autonomous, so too do the services and use cases. Drones first took off as a consumer and hobbyist phenomenon, but more recently they’ve blossomed into an array of enterprise use cases. Last year alone, drone startups saw more than $450M of investments.
Startups leveraging drones in unstructured environments will re-engineer agriculture, industrial inspection and insurance, to name just a few industries. Drones will also revolutionize last-mile logistics, most notably with Amazon laying out an ambitious vision for how drones will fit into their supply chain.
In this webinar we’ll delve into:
- Private market funding trends
- Major startup players
- New commercial and industrial use cases, including industrial inspection, agriculture, and insurance
- The software layer
- How corporate players like Amazon envision the future of drones
