Gallagher PR Expands Client Roster Blockchain Airspace Pioneer VIMANA Global
DANVILLE, Calif., Jan. 23, 2018 -- Gallagher PR (GPR), a San Francisco Bay Area full-service PR agency, today announced the addition of VIMANA Global to its client portfolio. Based in Redwood City, CA, VIMANA Global seeks to enable the Blockchain Airspace market by launching a “Smart City-specific” integrated, turnkey Urban Air Mobility (UAM) solution.
The urban air mobility industry has attracted marquee names such as internet entrepreneur Larry Page, who has invested $100 million into a UAM startup. Other major players like Walmart, IBM, Amazon and Mercedes-Benz are currently exploring blockchain potential to resolve the last mile delivery issue by combining drone technology and blockchain.
“As one of the top PR agencies in Silicon Valley, GPR has consistently delivered results for its entrepreneurial ventures,” said VIMANA Advisory Board Member Max Smetannikov. “We are eager to be engaged with GPR since VIMANA is uniquely positioned to make a major Urban Air Mobility impact by solving the looming traffic congestion infrastructure crisis. VIMANA puts smart cities into the driver’s seat with its blockchain-based air traffic control network that can be used with third party AAVs and UAVs, and by making Smart Cities a part of Blockchain Airspace economy.”
VIMANA Global closed angel financing last year and has on its executive team and advisory boards a cross-section of leaders and entrepreneurs in aerospace, blockchain and cryptocurrency. These include board chairman Mark Iwanowski (Trident Capital, Oracle CIO); founder Evgeni Borisov (Toshiba, Phillips), and NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria. VIMANA Global’s technological platform fuses aerospace design with blockchain technology. Its global team of leaders in these technical disciplines will drive VIMANA Global from early stage development to full monetization and deployment.
“VIMANA Global's innovation solves a key UAM challenge: extending the blockchain into the air, delivering the technology that would enable unmanned flights to launch and fly safely in any national airspace,” said GPR Managing Director Kevin Gallagher. “We are excited to support VIMANA because they are uniquely positioned to make a major urban air mobility impact by solving the looming traffic congestion infrastructure crisis.”
Founded in 1992, Gallagher PR has provided results-driven public relations campaigns for some of the technology industry’s most successful companies. Employing a consultative model, GPR provides exclusively senior talent on each and every account. As a result, campaigns get designed in record time, program implementation is initiated in weeks rather than months and results occur rapidly after kick off.
“VIMANA is uniquely positioned to make a major Urban Air Mobility impact by solving the looming traffic congestion infrastructure crisis,” says VIMANA advisory board member Max Smetannikov. “VIMANA is putting smart cities into the driver’s seat with its blockchain-based air traffic control network that puts into operation a blockchain standard to be used with third party AAVs and UAVs.”
