Skyborne validated its first market to provide start-up funding to create change with its next-generation drones.

Industry: Engineering

Market: $5.6 billion Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) drone market by 2020.

Problem: For infrastructure inspections, multi-rotor drones have limited endurance and limited line of sight, while fixed-wing drones can’t hover.

Solution: Skyborne Technologies is developing two hybrid tilt-rotor UAVs to address the market problem. 
Skyborne has learnt that communicating with customers and building a great team to generate immediate sales is critical to funding the development of their new UAVs.
