SA aerial data-analytics startup Aerobotics has hired a US representative and plans to expand into the US market, with a team from the startup set to embark on a sales visit to the US tomorrow (3 August).

It follows the announcement the Cape Town based startup made last month that it had closed a Series-A funding round led by local bank Nedbank for an undisclosed amount (see this earlier story).

Aerobotics co-founder James Paterson — who founded the startup in 2014 with Benji Meltzer — revealed the developments at a sales demo yesterday at Boshkloof Wine Estate near Stellenbosch.

The demo was aimed at presenting the product to wine farmers and was partly sponsored by Nedbank. About 50 people attended. Read the full article on Ventureburn here.
