Well, the day has come!
Dronamics in a nutshell
Based between Sofia and London, Dronamics was founded in 2014 by the Rangelov brothers, an economist and an aerospace engineer. Since then, the company has spent a few years on R&D and created a working prototype at a 1:4 scale called “The Black Swan“. In the meantime, Dronamics has also received numerous awards for drone innovation and has been funded by Founders Factory, Speedinvest, and Bulgarian VC Eleven.
Dronamics has become the world’s leading middle-mile cargo drone developer and operator and by all means, is one of the most successful Bulgarian startups. In July 2021, Dronamics celebrated a major success by partnering with the logistics giant DHL for middle-mile drone delivery, reaching an agreement with over 40 airports in 13 countries across Europe.

IPO of Dronamics Capital
Dronamics aims to raise €3 million (BGN 5,8 million) in an initial public offering (IPO) on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange’s SME growth market BEAM. Dronamics Capital EAD is a branch of the company created with the idea to provide investors with easier access to the startup.
90% of the funds will be invested in the parent company, Dronamics Global Limited, in the form of the standardized investment tool for startups SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity), introduced by the accelerator Y Combinator and established as a benchmark in financing thousands of fast-growing high-tech companies around the world.
In the next round of equity investments in Dronamix, the SAFE is converted into shares of Dronamics Global Limited at a preferential price. The remaining 10% will be used to pay the supply costs and operating costs of the long-term operation of Dronamix Capital EAD.
The new holding comes with a new Board of Directors. Teodora Gerdjikova takes over as a CEO. With her rich experience in the IT field and know-how gathered when working on the expansion of UBER in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, she is for sure a valuable asset for the Dronamics team. Svetlozar Yankov, a lawyer, and Momchil Vasilev, executive director of Endeavor, will support Dronamics as Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors.
