Drone retailer on the rise

Entrepreneur lands exclusive distribution deal with Richard Branson-backed company

DanDrone – a company started just two years ago by 28-year-old Andreas Krickhahn Larsen, which has an annual turnover of ten million kroner – has just landed a contract with a Richard Branson company, 3D Robotics, for the exclusive right to sell its Iris+ model in the Nordic countries, Metroxpress reports.

“It means everything for us to have this exclusive agreement,” Larsen told the newspaper.

“We expect that it will give us about a 200 percent increase in our turnover so we can go from 10-12 million in annual turnover to 30-35 million in 2016.”

Branching out
Larsen began his entrepreneurial career at the age of 13, selling network cable by the metre online, and DanDrone is the eighth company he has started.

He told Metroxpress that DanDrone’s goal was to diversify its customer base. “We have a good hold on the hobbyist market,” he expained.

“But our goal is definitely to branch out and service much more of the corporate market. There’s huge potential in different industries.”
