Drone delivery startup Manna boosts seed funding ahead of launch in Ireland

For Manna, a B2B drone delivery “as-a-service” company, today announced an additional funding round of $3 million, led by Dynamo VC, a logistics-focused fund.

Manna pitches itself as an “aviation-grade” drone delivery company, and plans to roll out a fully autonomous drone delivery platform beginning in early 2020, first in Europe and then in the U.S.

It’s also teamed up with Flipdish, the company that operates an online delivery platform used by restaurants and takeaways in Ireland.

The Manna drone fleet will, they say, be operated directly from the restaurant or dark kitchen premises and will be accessible via API to food tech providers and online food platforms alike in a channel-agnostic manner.
