Mr. Aleksey Matyushev
CEO & Co-Founder, Natilus
Aleksey graduated with an aerospace engineering degree with a specialization in aerodynamics. Since then he has led multiple engineering teams in programs involving Lockheed’s infamous Skunk Works, classified drone programs, and over 8 general aviation aircraft. After feeling the frustration with the aerospace industry, Aleksey created an industrial design firm which was an overnight Kickstarter success and went on to launch many products featured on Amazon, Macworld and other outlets. Natilus was was born out of the frustration of the firm’s clientele who wanted products delivered faster than sea freight but at a lower cost than current air freight can provide.
Since then, Natilus has been supported by some of the most high-profile Silicon Valley investors and has gone to recruit an incredible diversity of aerospace, Wall Street and air freight talent with the sole goal of reducing the cost of air freight through the use of large scale drones.
Natilus is on track to deploy a 30 ft wingspan / 2200 lbs drone which would carry 700 lbs from
LA to Hawaii at less than 50% the cost of current air freight by the end of the year.
