As mentioned in the startup’s statement, Dhoni said, “I’m thrilled to be a part of Garuda Aerospace & look forward to witnessing their growth narrative with the innovative drone solutions they have to offer.”

The addition of Dhoni to the Garuda Aerospace family, according to founder and CEO Agnishwar Jayaprakash, was a dream come true for him. Mahi Bhai is the definition of commitment, and I am convinced that having Captain Cool on our cap table adds a great deal of value and will inspire our staff to work harder.

Garuda Aerospace, according to Jayaprakash, has been a pioneer in the Indian drone ecosystem and is well on its way to becoming the country’s first drone unicorn startup.

The freshly inaugurated Garuda Aerospace drone production facilities were virtually opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Along with providing services to more than 750 customers, Garuda has collaborated with Swiggy, HAL, DRDO, IIT Madras, IIT Roorkee, Make In India, Invest India, MIT Boston, Intel, Wipro, and Cognizant to continuously develop and explore new horizons. The startup claims that 26 cities are home to their pilots.

Jayaprakash stated in an open letter to Prime Minister Modi earlier this month that without the progressive policies of his administration, none of the advancements made in the Indian drone ecosystem would have been feasible. He mentioned that his company produces 30 different varieties of drones and provides 45 distinct services.

“Garuda has gained market domination in the precision agro tech sector with predicted sales of over $400 million in the next six quarters by disrupting a $3 billion pesticide spraying market with the Kisan drone, increasing food crop yield for 200 million farmers.”
