Spotlight interview with Telewander:
Describe your startup and product as if you were describing it to a non-tech person on the street.
Telewander connects drone pilots with the media companies providing them with exciting tools to create high quality media and new experiences with drones for the viewers. Drone pilots gain visibility, find exciting jobs in the media, and concentrate on what they love, flying. At the same time, media companies can have the right drone pilot for the aerial work they need.
Describe how you got the idea to start your business.
The idea originated when the Telewander’s founders, Jose and Victoria, came across two entrepreneurs in the USA close to Boston working with an octocopter (a big drone with 8 propellers). They shared their experience of how exciting drone work can be and how great are the images taken by a drone. After this spontaneous meet, Victoria and Jose began to think about how to deliver fascinating drone images in real time to anyone on the Internet.
How does your product/service works?
Drone pilots can go to www.telewander.tv, create a portfolio, and showcase their work. Users can create an account as a viewer to see the live streamings by the drone pilots and interact. Media companies can find the right drone pilot for the high quality aerial footage.
