Our summer interns from UPenn and Columbia used the CB Insights platform to analyze emerging trends in real estate tech, blockchain, AI, retail tech, healthcare, and drones.
While the US accounts for nearly two-thirds of all drone investment activity, there are at least 11 other countries making bets in the space.
We ranked the top VCs, corporate VCs, and super angel investors in drones startups. Top investors included Lux Capital, Qualcomm Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and Felicis Ventures.
From analyzing millions of satellite images to finding healthy strains of plant microbiome, these startups have raised over $500M to bring AI and robotics to agriculture.
Over the last year, acquirers in the drone space included household names such as Boeing, Intel, Snap, and Verizon.
