Description

Keller Rinaudo is CEO at Zipline, a start-up that focuses on delivering medical necessities by drone to remote and challenging locations.

Abstract:
Zipline designs, manufactures, and operates small robot aircraft to deliver lifesaving medical supplies. With Zipline, all citizens can have fast and reliable access to lifesaving medical products like blood, vaccines, and essential medicines, regardless of challenging terrain and road infrastructure. In October 2016, the company launched the world's first drone delivery service in Rwanda, where the government hired them to make routine and emergency deliveries of blood to hospitals across the country.
