    Clem Newton-Brown (Skyportz)

    To get around, do you want to drive, take public transport, get an Uber, or do you want to just fly? Well the latter may be closer than you expect. 

    On this episode of the podcast, Andrew speaks with Clem Newton-Brown, OAM. Clem is the CEO and Founder of Skyportz. Skyportz is focused on the facilities and infrastructure side of 'drone taxis' - technology is fantastic, however how will this industry exist without places to take off and land! 

    Andrew discussed with Clem the background and future of Skyportz, including their recent capital raise, important deal with Electra.Aero and the future of the industry. 

    Enjoy! 

     

    *Note, we apologise for some connectivity issues during the podcast. COVID continues to throw curve balls, and there are times when the virtual connect isn't great. We plan to have Clem back on in the coming months, and will ask a few additional questions at that point.

A great podcast showcasing the potential of positive drone use

The Drones for Good podcast shows the potential of drones and UAVs in business and wider settings. The variety of guests on the podcast show how people can use technology to improve safety and remove unnecessary risk. Really insightful and interesting show.

Variety is key

I’m loving listening to the variety of cool this people are doing in the world of drones, all of which are doing good. Nice relaxed but professional extraction of information conducted by Andrew to get the key takeaways from his guests. Can’t wait to see what the future holds in this space.

Finally, strategy over product!!

In an age where drone products are all over the market it is great to hear from a crew who is agnostic. If you are sick of being sold products and want genuine information around strategy and implementation of world class capability, listen to this. If you don’t know what I mean by drone strategy over products, listen to this because you are behind. Drones make a difference to protecting our people and reducing risk.

Thanks team. Loving this podcast
