Drone Company featured on Shark Tank Gives Back to Public Safety Responders
$100K In free Drone Training to be Donated to Public Safety Departments Nationwide
DARTdrones has been operating in Salt Lake City, Utah for three years. CO-Founder and CEO Abby Speicher founded the company in 2014 after winning several business plan competitions with the idea of a drone training company. Since then, DARTdrones has gone on to accomplish many things, including being featured on Shark Tank and growing to become the nation’s leader in drone training. To celebrate the one year anniversary of being featured on Shark Tank and accepting an investment offer by Mark Cuban, Speicher created the DARTdrones Public Safety Grant in 2018.
The DARTdrones Public Safety Grant awards over $100K annually to public safety responders to become certified and trained in drone operations. “Drones have the
capability to do much more than just entertain and create beautiful content. Drones that are utilized by public safety departments have proven to save lives. We created the DARTdrones Public Safety Grant to help get drones into the hands of more public safety departments nation-wide,” says Speicher.
This year, the DARTdrones Public Safety Grant is back and bigger than ever as DARTdrones teams with Adorama, a national photography and video company, to offer one public safety department the opportunity to win a free drone. VP of Adorama Business Solutions, Dan Murphy had this to say about this year’s partnership with DARTdrones “Our partnership with DARTdrones offers public safety agencies the opportunity to work in a safer environment & enhance saving lives through drone technology. We are thrilled to give away a free drone to the Public Safety Grant winner and look forward to working with the departments who apply.”
Public safety responders like police and firefighters interested in adopting a drone program within their departments are encouraged to apply for the grant by visiting www.dartdrones.com/adorama21
