DroneDeploy announces another $20 million in Series B financing led by Scale Venture Partners, bringing its total amount of funding to $31 million.
“2016 was a tipping point for commercial drones. Businesses in every industry are leveraging drones and our software, and seeing that easy to capture, aerial data enables faster and better decisions,” said Mike Winn, co-founder and CEO of DroneDeploy. “With next week’s passing of the FAA Part 107, enterprises are moving quickly to prepare their workforces to leverage drones company-wide.”
