Startup launches crowdfunding campaign to change drone pilot gender gap


US-based start-up Women who drone (WWD) has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help build and grow its global influence.

The company wants to change the fact that less than 4% of certified drone pilots worldwide are female.

Company founder and CEO, Elena Buenrostro, started the company on the back of support she received following drone footage she captured while on holiday.

Since its beginning Women who drone has grown and now has brand ambassadors across the globe with the aim to inspire, educate and empower more women to learn to fly drones, obtain licenses, and join the drone industry.

WWD recently celebrated its one year anniversary and released a video asking for donations to help expand the brand.

WWD is also hosting workshops in the coming weeks to give drone pilots the chance to build on their skills and welcomes both men and women.
