Episode 26 - Colin Guinn - How Building a Big Ass Toy Helicopter Transformed an Industry!

This week we are excited to have Colin Guinn stopping by to talk about how building a big ass toy helicopter helped launch his amazing career while pioneering the modern day drone industry, as the co-founder and CEO of DJI North America. A serial entrepreneur, he most recently founded Guinn Partners and before that Hangar Technology in Austin, TX.

He’s one of the most interviewed experts on UAV technology in the world, and has been featured at premier industry conferences and in countless top-rated publications and newscasts, including 60 Minutes, Tech Crunch, and Fast Company.

Colin’s uniqueness to the business world is that he understands the technology in two dialects: the granular argot necessary to communicate with an engineer, and the simple, digestible language that’s interesting to the average consumer. His excitement for technology is palpable and contagious, and he has spent years putting UAVs and robotics in the light they deserve: powerful tools that help humanity in a myriad ways.

With Guinn Partners, Colin and a team of long-term experts from previous companies, combine to bring their product development and marketing skill sets together as a digital agency to high-tech companies and startups looking to break into new markets.

So now, sit back and enjoy this episode of The WHY MARKETING Podcast!
