Ready to change the world?

We are reinventing how products are delivered around the world by unlocking the path not yet traveled. VOLANSI was founded in 2015 and is backed by Silicon Valley’s most prominent VCs, including YCombinator, Lightspeed, and Icon Ventures. Volansi provides fast, on-demand aerial delivery services for time-critical shipments over long ranges. We build and operate long-range, high-payload drones for commercial, defense, and humanitarian applications. Leveraging drone technology as a transportation method, we help our customers gain control of their supply chain and save millions of dollars on downtime and inventory costs. Our work came from the immediate need for the critical delivery of parts to drastically reduce downtime for an automotive company. From this idea, our founders have scaled the company into a team of highly skilled and motivated individuals to serve critical delivery markets.
