DroneDeploy Raises $9M; In Series A Funding
DroneDeploy, a start-up that provides cloud-based software solutions for commercial drone operations, announced today that it has raised $9 million in Series A funding led by Emergence Capital, with participation from previous investors SoftTech, DataCollective and Angelpad. The investment adds to the $2 million in seed funding the company received in September 2014 and is a strong signal that backers are confident the start-up can continue its impressive growth. DroneDeploy will use the funds to adapt its software to more drone platforms, and launch additional products in several industries, such as agriculture, construction, mining, and real estate.
