An exclusive Tech Tribune Q&A with DJ Vegh, the co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer of AerialSphere, which was honored in our:
Tell us the origin story of AerialSphere – what problem were you trying to solve and why?
Jim Todd (co-founder of AS) and I were aerial photographers at the time, selling oblique and vertical aerial photos to residential and commercial brokers/agents. Our customers used the photos to assist them in better marketing their properties. In 2007, I began experimenting with 360° aerial photo capturing and soon realized that those photos were everything a vertical and oblique photo were, but also so much more. The ability to interactively look in any direction added tremendous value to the image. Before long, I began to capture and sell 360 photos to my customers. In 2014, I met Jim and showed him what I was up to with 360 aerials. He felt the concept was worthy of getting some venture capital and scaling out. In mid-late 2014, we were seed funded and things went from there.
