Aeroshutter Pivots It’s Drone Business Into Construction and Agriculture

Founded in 2014, Aeroshutter began with Aerial photography and videography for small and medium businesses. But now, the company is pivoting into new ventures.

Aeroshutter is now advancing into other industries, namely Agriculture, Construction, and Mining. Recently, Aeroshutter merged with Heptagon drones, a drone service start-up in Ghana. By merging forces, both companies are able to have a diverse team of developers, drone pilots, and business analysts.

With a focus on agriculture, Aeroshutter is mapping farmlands, analyzing plant health and maximizing yield and plant counting. By doing this, Aeroshutter seeks to help farm owners make better and more accurate business decisions, measure growth and in the long run, maximise plant yield.
