We are SkyWatch
We’re creating innovative,
easy-to-use tools that empower drone specialists and aviation pilots to fly safely.
SkyWatch was founded in 2016 by Tomer Kashi and Ori Blumenthal. It initially started as a project designed to assess drone flight risks in real time and create a “safety score” for drone operators. As the project evolved, the team kept hearing the same pain point rising from many operators - drone insurance! It was only natural to harness their combined experience and unique risk detection algorithms to disrupt the way drone insurance is handled today.
After SkyWatch has helped thousands of drone specialists, it only felt natural to continue providing our top tier services to the aviation world. SkyWatch is now proud to offer the insurance for the skies, providing flexible and affordable insurance to anything that flys.
SkyWatch is backed by F2 Capital, Kaedan Capital, Verizon Ventures and former insurance executives and world-class leaders in the drone industry.
SkyWatch is working closely with a seasoned advisory team, who bring significant managerial experience from previous startups (with a combined equity of over $1B), and from the fields of risk assessment and drone services. SkyWatch also partnered with best-in-class insurance and drone fleet management companies, to deliver pilots a product of the highest quality - as they deserve.
