A little bit about us:

We are a Boston-based startup that specializes in the development and commercialization of safe and compact unconventional aerial robots for the public safety and commercial markets.

Hundreds of lives are lost in the line of duty and in potentially dangerous situations, each year, in the US alone. The Dronut, our award-winning technology, is the world’s first unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed and engineered for safe operation indoors and around people. Used for reconnaissance and in emergency situations, its purpose is operation critical: to assess and provide real-time data prior to sending humans into harm’s way.

The Cleo team is a tight-knit group of incredibly passionate, creative, and ambitious individuals. Our vibe is cool, fresh, energetic, and sprinkled with lots of humor and out-of-the box ideas. We bring our best to work and we take pride in working with some of the best names in the tech industry. The UAV is a competitive space and we’re making our mark -- which is why we’re growing fast.
