Meet the 2017 Finalists: SwarmFX

Posted by Jaimisa Gourley

Our Mission: Our mission is to develop creative drone solutions to improve wildfire management.

What inspires you most about the work you do? It’s been very exciting to be able to devote ourselves to technology that we believe can push boundaries. We take a lot of our inspiration from the firefighters and threatened homeowners that we’ve spoken to. For many, summer is becoming a frightening time and knowing that we can have a meaningful impact on so many lives continues to drive us.

What’s next for your organization? We have been applying to a number of federal grants, and over the next few months we will begin executing whichever we receive.  Additionally, we will be pursuing opportunities to test our system over controlled burns and strengthening our relationships with firefighters.

What have you learned from the SVP Fast Pitch process so far? Fast Pitch has taught us a lot about how to quickly engage with our audience.  Many other formats are much longer, and this has given us the opportunity to learn how to quickly and effectively hook the audience while delivering necessary information.

What are you most excited about on October 24thWe are most excited about interacting with a larger audience, we love to present and talk to big groups!
