E Soar Robotics' Cloud-Connected Robotic Intelligence Platform For Drones

A: Focus more on wealth generation, not income generation. 

Q: Are you looking for additional funding or have a crowdfunding campaign? If so, what are you looking for in a potential investor, and how can interested readers get in touch/learn more? 

A: We recently concluded our seed round, and part of it was the crowdfunding via Republic. I strongly advise early-stage companies to pursue crowdfunding. The current state of VC funding is very narrowly focused and isolated. Crowdfunding lets founders learn from the wisdom of the crowd, and it is a great asset to have in the early days of a company. I believe ignoring the crowd wisdom is the main reason why most startups fail to turn themselves into a profitable and sustainable business. Large groups are collectively smarter than individuals, and that even applies to specific areas like robotics or AI. 

As we focus more on 5G technology, we are also preparing for our next round of financing. In deep tech, innovation speed is crucial. And we want to lead the innovation in the UAV and drone industry. We believe that the fundamental problems are still not solved in autonomous aerial vehicles. Regarding innovation, technology, and vision, we are well equipped to solve underlying infrastructure problems and always looking to partner with investors who share our vision.

Q: Is there any advice you'd give to other aspiring entrepreneurs?

A: The main thing that you learn as a founder is mastering the art of connecting the dots. The whole entrepreneurial process is about connecting the dots and turning them into lines. This is true from innovating new technologies to product development and sales. To sustain that, you need to master the skill of adaptability. As a founder, there are lots of things that you can't predict from the start, so you have to adapt to the ever-changing dynamics of the business. I think an urge for continuously learning new things and being curious about every aspect of life is the key to mastering adaptability.

I remember reading about another startup drone company here on TalkMarkets:


Maybe you and Derek Waleko should team up or do some business together.
