DronePrep receives $25K sponsorship from Microsoft for Startups

The Microsoft for Startups Program, which is a global program dedicated to helping startups successfully scale their companies, selected Malvern-based DronePrep.

As part of its program, DronePrep will receive access to powerful technology including Azure and GitHub Enterprise coupled with a streamlined path to selling alongside Microsoft and the global partner ecosystem.

“The recently launched, new DronePrep platform has been built using Microsoft technologies and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with Microsoft for Startups to enhance, grow and scale our software,” Claire Owen, Co-founder of DronePrep commented.

DronePrep aims to inform drone operators about locations where drones can be flown as well as facilitate between landowners and the drone community to open up opportunities for both groups. Ultimately, the drone startup strives to help define where it is possible to deliver drone highways in the sky.

DronePrep secured the sponsorship following an introduction arranged by Worcestershire technology accelerator BetaDen as it came towards the end of its time on the program. BetaDen, which is based at Malvern Hills Science Park, provides early-stage technology businesses with a nine-month program of support worth around £50,000, including 30 hours of access to Worcestershire’s 5G testbed, guidance from an industry partner with established supply chain networks, a £10,000 proof of concept grant, mentoring from BetaDen’s handpicked team of commercial and technical experts and office space.

Claire added: “BetaDen has played a huge part in our journey and preparing us for the next stage of our development and we can’t wait to share the next stage of our journey with our fellow cohort members, investors, and current and potential customers.”
