"After solving the issue of safety, what you have to do is to think how this technology will scale. And to us scale means automation.”

Andreas Raptopoulos is the founder and CEO of Matternet and a pioneer in drone delivery technology. Matternet started in Silicon Valley in 2011, and became the first company to deliver small parcels, in urban settings, via drones. Today the company counts UPS among its collaborators, and has raised more than $30M from investors. Andreas talks to us about his early years in Greece, the leap to the US, and the ‘golden age’ of drones.
