Dronamics convinced the jury of top investors (Fred Destin von Accel, Lior Susan von Formation 8, Marvin Liao von 500 Startups, Oliver Holle von SpeedInvest und Simon Levene von Mosaic Ventures) with their pitch about drones doing delivery and logistics services.
They beat their competitors including Opendatasoft, Promotheon Pharma, Watly, Ascribe, Skedool, Cuckuu and Yottio. Dormancy is a Dutch-Bulgarian company developing advanced Unmanned Aerial Systems optimized for heavy payloads and long range, for use in commercial and special logistics missions or in other words as they put it “Cargo-Drones”.
Is dronamics now going to be the end for common cargo and postal services? We don’t know but for now the team can celebrate. They got the startup oscar, the pioneers trophy and EUR 100,000 as pre-seed investment from Pioneers Ventures.
