What they do: Flirtey builds drones for real-time package delivery. Their drone is the first ever approved by the FAA to deliver here in the United States.Why it’s a big deal: The last-mile of delivery has always been the most expensive and inconvenient. Now companies can circumvent the post office and deliver directly from their storage facilities the moment something is ordered. Flirtey is set to change the e-commerce industry.It’s not just e-commerce. NASA has partnered with Flirtey for speedy life-saving medical supply delivery.
Ahmed and Matt have worked together for over five years since founding the entrepreneur societies at their universities and Tom is a drone pilot with a design degree.
WHY WE'RE DOING THIS
Everyone on the team believes that delivery by drones is inevitable. We're at the Apple II phase of the UAV revolution and see a massive opportunity to be at the forefront of a new industry that can one day become a macroeconomic disruptor.
As autonomy increases and the technology matures, the cost curve approaches zero - and cheap delivery anywhere, anytime will do entirely new and interesting things to the whole economy.
