The Time Has Come

There comes a point in the growth curve of every small business where an owner realizes that they just can’t do it all themselves. When you come to a proverbial fork in the road and have to make a very serious decision that will forever impact the future of your business. It’s a tough decision to make – continue to juggle all the demands of the business by yourself or look to the outside for help. Not just help…partnership. And, if outside partners are brought in, can you live with the idea of handing over a significant financial and creative stake in the business you’ve shed blood, sweat, and tears for? Well….

603 Drones, LLC…meet Fork in The Road.

When I started this business in the Autumn of 2016, its primary purpose was conventional aerial imaging – sort of an add-on service to my already-successful conventional photography offerings. But, these past few years have seen an unprecedented explosion of consumer drone use along with the inevitable move by companies to bring their aerial imaging needs in-house. As I look to the future of what this business can be, I believe it is now time to look towards the expansion of service offerings.

I Have a Vision – What’s Yours?

There is so much more to this industry than just taking pictures from the air and I want to seize on some ideas and some opportunities before it is too late. I want to expand our offerings in ways that transcend “pretty pictures” or basic imaging. I want to turn the strong marketing presence and solid business reputation that we have developed into a leader in the unmanned vehicles market in New England. With over 20 years in industrial manufacturing, automation, Lean methodologies, training, and more, I want to add my skillset to that of others who are equally driven and equally passionate about building something truly remarkable.

To that end, I am opening up a seat (or seats) at the table for the right partner or partners. I am not looking for financial commitments as I believe those are conversations to be had AFTER a true synergy is found. Nor am I looking for someone who can just fly a drone. I am looking for someone with a proven and diverse background in any areas such as robotics, radio systems, microelectronics, software, automation, and, yes, unmanned vehicles. Someone who won’t give up when the going gets tough but who is full of ideas and is ready to start building. Someone who knows they can probably start doing it on their own (whatever “it” may be) but who understands the inherent benefits in working with the right partners and building the right team.

Does any of this sound like you? If so, let’s talk! Send me an introductory letter via email (see Contact page) and tell me a bit about yourself and what you believe we could accomplish. Join me on LinkedIn, as well, so we can share professional information (links in my Author bio, below!). Just imagine the possibilities and maybe we can make them happen!
