Drone Accelerator Genius NY Partners with Murzilli Consulting to Help Startups Take Flight

Drone Accelerator GENIUS NY Partners with International Regulatory Consulting Organization Murzilli Consulting

by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby

Murzilli Consulting and GENIUS NY have announced a new partnership providing start-up participants in the GENIUS NY drone accelerator programme and portfolio with Murzilli Consulting in-house resources, assisting them with complex regulatory frameworks and enabling faster revenue generation.

Founded in 2017 to support drone companies struggling to go to market, GENIUS NY is the largest uncrewed aerial systems and robotics accelerator programme in the world. The organization invests in start-ups through funding, networking, marketing, sales and recruiting efforts, and has invested $18 million in 32 companies across 8 countries.

This new partnership enables both organizations to support the growth of promising start-ups. GENIUS NY will undergo a thorough vetting process to establish viable business models among applicants while offering nearly end-to-end support, while Murzilli Consulting will assist these efforts with its regulatory and strategic consulting services. This also enables start-ups in the GENIUS NY portfolio to receive support from the Murzilli Consulting team, with each support package tailored to suit the needs of the company. The Murzilli Consulting team has previously worked with multiple start-ups that have gone through the GENIUS NY accelerator programme, such as Wonder Robotics, ResilienX, AVSS and Fusion Engineering.

“This partnership has the potential to give start-ups the resources they need to make a real impact on the drone industry and compete with large players backed by powerful parent companies,” said Lorenzo Murzilli.

“We are very excited by this partnership with Murzili Consulting to support our portfolio of companies and help drive growth with access to resources that these businesses may not have had otherwise,” said GENIUS NY Director Kara Jones.
