We are aiming to lead the way into the drone era
Upteko™ was founded in 2018 by Mads Joergensen, Benjamin Mejnertz, and Sebastian Duus to pursue the opportunity of developing drone applications for the maritime sector. For Benjamin and Sebastian, it started as a hobby, competing in RC Helicopter competitions around the world and later became a business worth pursuing. Mads came onboard, and together they created Upteko and built a great team of experienced drone pilots, software- and hardware engineers, and business developers. Today Upteko has offices located in Copenhagen, Odense, and Skanderborg. At our core, Upteko is about using our creativity and initiative to become leaders in the drone industry.
To develop fitting solutions to your needs, we value collaboration and co-creation highly among external parties. Through several years of collaborating with our customers, complementary assets providers, and even competitors, we have achieved priceless partnership within the maritime and other sectors. We are continuously on the hunt for new collaborations.
