Panel Discussion:  Moving past the market failure to finance sustainable medical drone deliveries

TBD September 2020

Part 2 of the webinar series: Moving past test flights - accelerating a drone-enabled COVID-19 response. In our second webinar, we will discuss the critical question - who is going to pay for a drone enabled COVID-19 response? Donors have funded boutique short-term projects but have lagged in funding long-term deployments. Venture capitalists have focused on a few high profile start-ups as revenue streams are murky in low and middle income markets. Innovative financing mechanisms are needed to help governments "de-risk" drone delivery, but how do we get there?  Join our panel to start the conversation on how we can move the needle to fund long-term drone operations.
