You order a few things from Amazon (some lightbulbs and batteries, maybe some cookies), and just ten minutes later, you get a notification that your delivery has arrived.
So you step out your front door, look up — and there, hovering like a metallic hummingbird, is a flying machine the size of a toaster. When you look closer, you realize your parcel is attached to its robotic arms. It lowers itself to the ground, sets your package at your feet, and flies away.
This future — delivery by “drones”! — helps explain why the drone market is soon expected to be worth $127 billion.
There’s just one problem here, and it’s a big one: drones occasionally malfunction and fall out of the sky — and when they do, they can kill you. A risk like that could stop this sector in its tracks before it even gets started.
The thing is, if a company could solve this safety hazard, it would be worth a fortune.
And that’s why we’re writing you today.
“Drones Are Here to Stay…”
Between 2013 and 2017, drone sales in the U.S. skyrocketed from $44 million to $1.3 billion.
This growth is being driven by farmers who use drones to monitor crops, by Hollywood studios to capture footage, and by first responders to coordinate Search & Rescue efforts.
As a result, Time Magazine recently declared that “Drones are here to stay. Get used to it.”
But despite great potential, the industry’s growth has been paralyzed. As mentioned a moment ago, if a drone falls out of the sky, it can kill you.
That’s why the FAA currently prohibits drones from flying over any populated area.
But recently, a technology start-up came with a solution to this safety issue…
The start-up I’m referring to is called Indemnis.
Essentially, Indemnis has developed a patented technology that can detect when a drone has failed — and in less than 30 milliseconds, it can deploy a special parachute. This parachute enables the drone to glide slowly and safely to the ground.

Already Trusted by the FAA
Just like seat belts and airbags revolutionized car safety, Indemnis’ technology might be poised to revolutionize drone safety.
You see, not only is Indemnis the only company to create a drone safety system that passes muster with the FAA… but federal regulators recently tasked Indemnis to help create the Rules and Regulations for commercial drone activity in the U.S.
If the FAA requires drones to be equipped with a safety feature like the one Indemnis has built, this tiny start-up could soon bring in millions, or even billions, of dollars in revenues.
And here’s the best part:
You can invest in this company today, while it’s still on the ground floor…
An Investment in Indemnis
Indemnis is raising about $1 million, and it’s seeking that capital from investors like you.
The minimum investment is $100.
Should you consider an investment?
On the “pro” side of the ledger:
In addition to its trusted relationship with the FAA, Indemnis has already been granted two patents, with several others pending…
Its potential customers could come from sectors as varied as e-commerce, healthcare, and the U.S. military…
And M&A activity in this industry has already started heating up. In fact, Boeing, Intel, and Verizon have already acquired drone start-ups for hundreds of millions of dollars.
But on the “con” side, the company’s valuation is $25 million — meaning Indemnis would need to be acquired or go public at a value of at least $250 million for investors in this round to make 10x their money. (10x is our profit target for any early-stage investment).
Statistically speaking, most start-up deals get done for far less than $250 million — but given the vast potential of this market, an acquisition at such a high level isn’t out of the question.
