DroneView Technologies has landed an undisclosed amount of seed capital from a big name, R.L. Polk & Co chairman Stephen Polk.
The Bloomfield Hills-based company is developing technology for drone aerial imaging solutions and drone operator training.
“It’s an opportunity where we would rather make our own platform,” says Michael Singer, CEO of DroneView Technologies. “It’s an industry that’s really at an inflection point. It was developed by the military and is being adapted to commercial uses.”
The 1-year-old company currently employs two employees and 6-12 independent contractors. It is headquartered in Bloomfield Hills but also has an office in New York. The seven-figure seed capital raise will help the company further develop its technology and add to its team.
DroneView Technologies is looking to apply its technology to a broad variety of industries, such as real-estate construction and industrial inspection. Any place where data needs to be collected in hard-to-reach places.
“We want to become a nationally recognized brand in drone space,” Singer says.
