• Dronamics, the world's first licensed cargo drone airline, opens a €2M Pre-Series A round for private investors on SeedBlink today with a minimum ticket size of €2,500
• The previous and oversubscribed Dronamics campaign marked the first Bulgarian investment opportunity on SeedBlink, who have by now facilitated more than 70,000 investors from 88 countries.
SOFIA, July 18th, 2023 – SeedBlink, the financing platform for European technology startups, is currently running its second raise for Dronamics, the world's first licensed cargo drone airline. The round is a year and a half later after the first SeedBlink campaign for Dronamics, and is allowing current and new investors to maintain and expand their stake in the cargo drone developer and operator. The current campaign targets a €2 million Pre-Series A raise exclusively on SeedBlink, and follows the oversubscribed raise in December of 2021 where more than 200 investors took part via the SeedBlink platform. Dronamics, the first and only cargo drone airline with a license to fly long-range cargo drones in the EU, completed its full-scale first flight successfully in May 2023 and is set to begin commercial operations at the end of this year, several years ahead of competitors.
The initial Dronamics campaign was one of the first international capital raises for the equity funding platform SeedBlink, who have by now facilitated more than 70,000 investors from 88 countries to invest in promising venture-backed startups like Dronamics.
“Dronamics was our first Bulgarian investment opportunity and it is with great pleasure that we welcome them back on the platform to offer our investors the exclusive opportunity to participate in their current round of funding, only a few months ahead of their first priced Series A round, which will bring the commercialisation of the business.”
Angel Hadjiev, Country Manager Bulgaria at SeedBlink.
The minimum ticket size for investors is €2,500 (€1,000 for SeedBlink Club Members), a threshold appealing for private individuals who would like to become shareholders in the company set to change how the world moves goods. The round starts today and will close on July 31st, 2023.
