Brinc Drones founder talks about funding, Blue sUAS and tactical drones

Seems to be part of a marketing strategy, Brinc Drones founder, Blake Resnick talks about funding, Blue sUAS, and tactical drones in a short interview on FOX Business. As supporters of innovative and real American-made drones, we think this interview is worth sharing and watching.

At 21 years, Blake Resnick is one of the youngest and most talented entrepreneurs in the fast-growing drone industry. Brinc Drones offers a very special drone for first-responders. The Brinc’s Lemur S tactical drone can be breakthrough windows, can easily be flown inside, can flip right-side-up if needed, and allows for two-way communication between police officers and suspects.

The young drone company recently raised an additional $25M and will soon rise even more funding to expand its operations as the only real Blue sUAS dronemaker that does not use any Chinese-made parts.

Cumulatively now we raised about 27.2 [million]. And we’re actually in talks to do roughly another 50 or 60 [million]. So yeah hopefully in the next basically previous 12 months we will raised around 100 [million if this closes, says Resnick, a Las Vegas native.

New office for tactical drone company

Brinc Drones recently moved into their new engineering head office in Seatle. The tactical drone startup employs around 60 people and its drones are in use at around 100 police departments around the country.

“We build tools in the service of public safety,” said Resnick to FOX Business. “So devices that enable first responders to put eyes and ears in places that are too dangerous to send a person.”

Resnick started Brinc Drones to improve public safety following the 2017 Mandalay Bay mass shooting during which 64-year-old Steven Paddock killed 60 people and wounding 411 during one of the worst mass-shooting this country has ever seen.

Brinc Drones grew very rapidly during the last year and the new funding promises a bright future for the tactical drone company.
