Interdrone is the largest commercial drone event in North America and is held in Las Vegas, NV every year. Last year, GENIUS NY received more than 100 applications at the show from early stage startups focused in UAS, automation and IoT.
This year, GENIUS NY will be located at booth 817 and be giving away free t-shirts and a chance at winning a new DJI Spark to any startup who applies to the program. The competition's application period ends October 1 and invests $3 million into five early-stage startups.
GENIUS NY Director, Jon Parry will be present to meet and answer any questions regarding the application process and/or questions about the year-long program. Jon is not coming alone however. Three GENIUS NY teams that have participated and are currently participating in the accelerator will be there as well. Meet at Interdrone:
A unique and important event at Interdrone is their Women in Drones Luncheon. It's a special networking event created to connect women in the drone industry. The last two years GENIUS NY has attended to hear from leading women in the drone space and has left with potential applicants for the program.
In this year's cohort there are three women co-founders. GENIUS NY promotes diversity in teams and is especially focused on investing in women-owned drone startups.
If you have a startup in unmanned systems, automation, IoT or data-to-decision platforms apply to GENIUS NY by October 1. Just think what your startup could accomplish with $1 million!
Stop by booth 817 at Interdrone to apply and meet the team. See you there!
