Note from Drone.VC

Drone.VC Syndicate: This is a domain-specific syndicate built to discover and invest in prototype-phase companies working with drones. Investments are intended to be early money in to these companies, often as early as time of incorporation. Applications are expected to cover a very wide range of geographies and industries, including farming, oil and gas, real estate, retail/delivery, and security/surveillance. We do not plan on investing in military-focused applications or weaponized platforms. We do not invest in media-centric plays (e.g. networks of contract drone videographers) or business plans in need of a technical cofounder.

If you are a founder who has something working and wants a hand bringing it to market / accelerating your progress, we want to talk to you - fill out a company application at apply.drone.vc. We'd love to add you to our portfolio of awesome companies bringing our airspace into the 21st century. Bonus points if there's a female on your founding team. (Such companies outperform!)

ABOUT THE FOUNDER (David Weekly): As the founder of the world's largest hackerspace, Hacker Dojo, and Mexico's first seed fund for tech entreprenurs (Mexican.VC), David is well-connected to the global startup community. As an award-winning startup mentor, David has a rich history in mentoring successful startups, including naming Sean Parker's Plaxo (exit to Comcast for >$150m), acting as the lead advisor for Attassa ($Xmm to YouSendIt), advising Like.com (exit to Google for >$100m), and dozens of others.

Founder of a company David E. Weekly advised
David is a great strategic product thinker. He can attract talented people into his team and coach them towards a product solution. He was very young when he started PBWorks but still managed to get millions of users on his platform in a very short timeframe.

For David E. Weekly's work at PBworks
David rocks. Solid advice. Brutal truth. Poignant pushes in the right direction. There's no better person to have in your corner.
David is an amazing advisor. He's insanely smart and thinks through problems differently than almost any entrepreneur I know. I always consult him when I'm up against a wall.
