Accelerate Evolution

Welcome to the third dimension. DRONEMASTERS is a cross-industry platform for vertical mobility. DroneMasters Boost serves as an incubator to enable the faster development of sustainable solutions. The DroneMasters Academy focuses on education and training, and DroneMasters Venture invests in start-ups.

The DroneMasters are incubators, project developers and accelerators. Since 2010 we operate at the intersection of digitalization, sustainability, and communication. Today we focus on drones and vertical mobility. We initiate projects, develop new business models, build digital platforms and flying prototypes, advise companies, support start-ups, connect experts with enthusiasts and promote the passion for drones with education and sporting competitions.

We accelerate the development of vertical mobility because we are convinced that we can contribute effectively to meeting the United Nations' sustainability goals.

The DRONEMASTERS Academy opens game-based access to science, technology, engineering and mathematics for juniors and seniors since 2017. We enable digital education with drones and drone racing.

The DRONEMASTERS MeetUps and Conferences created the world's largest cross-industry platform for vertical mobility and drones. DroneMasters challenges and events reach more than 100.000 visitors. Conferences such as DRONEMASTERS Logistics and DRONEMASTERS Mobility set the pace for the industry. With the Dronathon, we have transformed a challenge for industrial drones into a sporting competition that was officially recognized by the World Air Sports Organization FAI in 2018.

Everybody interested in drones and vertical mobility is invited to subscribe to the weekly DRONEMASTERS Briefing.

DRONEMASTERS Convention 2018

On August 26., at the DRONEMASTERS Convention 2018, industrial drones rose again above the track of the Berlin-Karlshorst trotting track. This year, Team Copterproject from Hamburg took first place at the Dronathon, the world's only marathon for industrial drones. The winning team covered the entire marathon distance of 42.195 kilometres in 56:41 minutes.

See you in 2019!


Dronemasters Events


Whithin our Meetups we share knowledge and experiences with professionals and beginners in business, science, sports and entertainment. To keep it entertaining, the timeframe for each individual speaker is limited to 9 minutes. Meetup languages are english and german.

We are looking forward to more MeetUps in 2019.





Automated mobility in the lower airspace will revolutionize traffic worldwide. In view of these developments, high investments in infrastructure for less developed areas appear to be seen in a different light. We are pleased to announce the first DRONEMASTERS conference in Africa, which will provide insights into the flourishing African ecosystem around drones, air taxis and unmanned transport systems.

Further information will follow soon.

Please contact us for information about possible partnerships and cooperations.
