What is Birdi

Birdi is a scalable aerial intelligence platform that’s easy for anyone to use. Our mission is to empower organisations with easy to use aerial intelligence tools that help them supercharge their operations.

We enable organisations everywhere to make better business decisions - from safety on-site through to building out new revenue streams. Whether it’s drones or satellites, if it’s data above the ground, we can help.

We know that aerial intelligence can get complicated, so at Birdi, we want to make it as simple as possible. As such, our platform is packed full of the features you need, without the unnecessary complexity (or cost), to help you save time, money and resources.

Our story

Birdi began as a simple idea between 2 brothers, Sebastian and Abraham: what if we could improve the way organisations ran their operations through the use of drone technology?

Abraham had been living abroad in New York and was facing a couple of independent challenges in which he felt drones could help: 1) improving the field positioning of the touch football team he coached; and 2) boosting the efficiency of rooftop solar panel inspections that was part of the industry he consulted in.

He began flying drones for both of these use cases, and their impact was obvious (and lo and behold, his touch football team even won!).

Abraham returned to Sydney, Australia, and after months of working long into the night with Sebastian, Birdi was born. Since its beginnings in 2016, Birdi has helped some of Australia’s most well-known companies experience the benefits of drones and aerial intelligence for improving their organisations.

After finding our feet in the Australian market for the first 5 years, we’re now ready to spread our wings abroad and support companies with aerial intelligence goals across the world.

2016: Birdi is born

Brothers Sebastian and Abraham conceptualise Birdi, and get to work building a platform with our first developers.

2017: The MVP launch

The Birdi 1.0 platform is launched and high fives are shared all-round. Our first industry customers trial Birdi with positive reviews!

2018: We iterate

Birdi 2.0 platform is launched, with improvements from customer feedback. We launch the Birdi drone pilot network with 200 pilots.

2019 - 2020: Enterprise growth

We continue to grow our enterprise customer base and our pilot network, and test the Birdi platform at scale across Australia and internationally. COVID gives us a surge in demand for our pilot network capture, since workers can't be on-site.

2021: New industries, new features

We keep building features that enable us to support different industry use cases for our enterprise customers. Our pilot network grows to over 2,000 drone pilots.

2022: SaaS and rebrand

We launch our new SaaS model to help organisations of all sizes to scale aerial intelligence in their operations. We know ourselves better now, and launch our new brand identity to match who we are.

Beyond: Vision achieved!

We become the world’s aerial intelligence platform. We help countless customers around the globe to improve the way their organisations run through aerial intelligence.
