EvoNexus says 182 start-ups applied for this latest round; of the applicants, 13 companies were admitted. EvoNexus companies have raised over $686 million in funding and outcomes since the incubator’s founding in 2009, and over 1,200 have applied since that time.
Skysense, which is building the first fully automated, scalable drone charging infrastructure, is joining EvoNexus San Diego at the downtown location. What the Tesla charging network is for electric cars, Skysense will be for drones, explains EvoNexus.
Skysense, which is headquartered in San Diego, also has a representative office in Berlin, Germany, and a research and development subsidiary in Trento, Italy. Its drone charging infrastructure includes a drone kit, with a charger and wiring kit; a charging pad with a wide landing area; a weatherproof droneport for charging and stationing; and a network manager.
With the admission of these 13 companies, there are now 56 technology start-ups across the three EvoNexus locations in San Diego, La Jolla and Irvine.
