How is Brinc qualified to run a drone services program?

We were really inspired by the talent and enthusiasm that we found in the region yet found there was a need from up-and-coming entrepreneurs looking to jumpstart their drone services concepts but didn’t have access to the resources, services or applications that lie typically in the West or in Asia.

With Heriberto, our dedicated technical resource for Reimagine Drone who will be on the ground working closely with the startups in the program in addition to key members from Brinc and leading Barcelona incubator, Incubio, we have a strong, passionate team ensuring that participating startups get access to the latest drone platforms and technologies to develop commercially viable services and applications for global markets.

 


Can my drone idea be a selfie drone?

No, we are focused on drones as a service, that said, here are some examples of use cases we would get excited about: 

  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Insurance
  • Inspection
  • Public Safety
  • Infrastructure
  • Oil & Gas, Utilities
  • Mining
  • Wildlife & Environment
  • Humanitarian
  • GIS
  • Surveying
  • Cinematography
  • Advertising
  • Law Enforcement
  • Maritime

Why did Brinc choose to launch a program in Barcelona?

We’ve always been attracted by Barcelona, a city known for its strong foundation in mobile and software technology and vibrant startup community. With Brinc’s accelerator platform located in the Pearl River Delta (PRD), the center of manufacturing, and our collective experience from taking entrepreneurs from all over the world from concept to commercialization, we can’t wait to join forces with Incubio to combine our platforms and offer European startups the education and resources traditionally reserved for companies located in Asia to to build the next generation of drone based services and applications.


What is the program structure?

The semi-finalists will enter a 2-month pre-accelerator program which will be run by Incubio and will consist of a combination of customized online Lean Startup curriculum and in-house technical support, training and mentorship. During this time, they will also compete to be one of three finalist for the on-site incubation stage in Barcelona.  The three finalist that will go to Barcelona in exchange for 6% equity will receive access to the latest drone prototyping tools and technology, mentorship from IT, legal and accounting professionals, 200 hours of specialist's time to refine execution and opportunities to exhibit to investors and mentors. The program will culminate with a demo day where up to €50,000 investment will be granted to companies that demonstrate traction.
