Verizon Acquires Skyward to Simplify Drone Operations and Reduce Complexity for Businesses

We started Skyward four years ago with a dream of bringing commercial drone operators the tools they need to safely access the sky. Now, people in over 40 countries rely on Skyward to power drone programs in industries like construction, industrial inspection, media, insurance, real estate, mining, precision agriculture, and more.  

Skyward’s drone operations management platform combined with Verizon’s network, reliability, trusted brand, and expertise in building enterprise solutions will help us deliver the solutions our customers need faster than ever before.

So what does this mean for Skyward customers? To start, we will continue to focus on making our products easier, faster, and more efficient. Our mission will stay the same: to power safe, efficient commercial drone operations so you can maximize the value that drones bring to your business.

For our current users, you won’t have to change a thing—we will continue to do business as usual. And stay tuned, we have a lot in store for you.

Onward, Upward, and Skyward!

Mariah Scott and Jonathan Evans
Co-Presidents of Skyward, A Verizon Company
