Fresh off $50M round, Bay Area drone startup Volansi opens Bend, Ore. office
Long distance drone delivery service startup Volansi is expanding its footprint with a new office in Bend, Ore. The 5-year-old company will move some of its development, production, and testing work to Central Oregon. “We look forward to joining the community and making the Bend area our second home.”Mike Jackson, vice president of global operations, is based in Bend and will lead the new office. Volansi just raised a $50 million Series B round in September to help fuel growth of its drone fleet that delivers supplies for enterprise and government clients. Redfin last week noted that resort towns including Bend are increasingly becoming full-time residences for people who can work remotely.
