Volocopter has been selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s ‘Technology Pioneers’.
WEF says its Technology Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies and innovations.
Volocopter fits into this as a company which aims to decongest high-traffic megacities by adding emission free autonomous urban air taxis designed to fly people to their destination.
The company’s air taxis are emission-free, electrically powered aircraft that take off and land vertically (eVTOL).
Commenting on Volocopter’s selection, Fulvia Monstresor, head of tech pioneers at WEF, commented: “We’re excited to welcome Volocopter to this year’s innovative class of technology pioneers. Volocopter and its fellow pioneers are leaders in using novel technologies to transform their industries.”
He added: “We see great potential for Volocopter to offer solutions to the global mobility challenges and improve society for years to come.”
Following its selection as Technology Pioneer, CEO Florian Reuter of Volocopter will be participating in the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of the New Champions.
