From the beginning, Matthew Sweeny’s career was marked with the first one. Entrepreneurs born in Australia are the first in the family to go to school, and it is an opportunity to study overseas in Shanghai that will inspire companies to become pioneers.
While in China, he studied the helicopter model, which inspired him to start the drone concept in the dorm room. In 2013, he set up a drone delivery. After graduating from accelerator Y Combinator, Flirtey again won the first game.
In the summer of 2015, in collaboration with Langley NASA Research Center, the first FAA has ever recognized the transfer of drones in the United States.
land, consisting of 24 medical supplies packages in Wise, Va. Since then, Flirtey has sold $ 16 million in funding and has worked with different colleagues as Johns Hopkins, Domino and 7-Eleven Medical University.
Sweeny says that the work is part of a plan to make your delivery, a polite aviation robot, whether for dinner or a frugal medical device, such as a company’s outsourcing initiative initiative has been used since last year.
We are stuck with Sweeny to ask for 20 Questions and find out what makes him a sign.
Did you start today?
Today is typical for me at 9am. up to 2 nd. The first thing I did was check out the news and try to find a different opinion.
I will check liberal news, conservative news and then I will check Reddit as well. I have determined that the world over the last 24 hours is the right foundation for me to start today.
How are you ending today?
The most productive hour is when everyone is asleep, usually from about 11 am. up to 2 nd. When I was free from that disturbance at that time, I focused on high concentration tasks such as contracts and offers with major customers. To get off, I usually watch the documentary.
What changes the mind and why?
The Wright Brothers by David McCullough. The book is with me because when it’s important to be the first one, it’s more important to win. My Flirtey’s transit building is heavily influenced by Wright’s heritage.
Flirtey completed the first FAA-approved aircraft transit in America and when I call Kitty Hawk today. At that time, many people did not believe that the drone carrier could be technically or could be approved by the regulator.
Accepted aircraft are received at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and will be shown with Wright brothers Wright Flyer, a plane flying at Kitty Hawk. However, Wright’s sister did not win.
I’m very fortunate to build a company that not only has a pioneering pioneer but also builds a long-term competitive advantage
What book do you suggest and why?
Not a book but a letter. The Birmingham Prison Letters are written by Martin Luther King Jr. In the Civil Rights era, Martin Luther King Jr. He was arrested and wrote in the newspaper, which was the only book available to him.
I propose this because it is the greatest embodiment of the major principles of the Civil Rights era but also because there is a strong passage, which “unfairly threatens everywhere”. This is a very important message today as it is today.
What is the strategy to continue to focus?
Time limit. Flirtey is in good time right now. We are moving from the lead, where I am responsible for every decision, to a company with a strong leadership team. My ultimate responsibility is to lead the leadership team to continue to strengthen our growth.
The time limit is as balancing between the manager’s calendars, where I take the meeting, and then the undisputed time is barred, called the manufacturer’s calendar, where I can investigate the strategy, work contract and customer work.
When you are young, what do you want when you grow up?
I still remember high school middle school. The teacher sat on it and wrote on a single word board, in all the letters, “entrepreneur.
” I have never heard the word before. But when he explained I knew that I wanted to be. Whether an entrepreneur is for me is someone who is risking trying to build something that has never been built before people build with you can see the benefits of success, including through stock options in the company until they finally have a share in the created value.
