The Australian Drone industry is expanding and the recent capital raise by Carbonix is a perfect example. Carbonix recently raised AU$6.3 million in late seed funding. The round, which was oversubscribed, includes listed Defence aerospace manufacturer Quickstep Holdings Limited (ASX: QHL) (“Quickstep”) who invested $1M - adding a strategic dimension to the mix of individuals and small funds taking up the opportunity.
This week, Mirragin’s Andrew Crowe had a chat with Chief Technology Officer and Founder of Carbonix, Dario Valenza. Andrew and Dario discuss:
Dario’s background, and how he got into the drone industry (through competitive yacht sailing boat design!),
the recent capital raise,
‘Drones as a Service’, and
what’s next for Carbonix.
It’s amazing watching this fantastic, maturing and industry grow!
