Ingo studied at the Braunschweig University of Technology and received his PhD in surface engineering at the Frauenhofer Institute. In 2013 when a toy drone crashed into a stage in front of Angela Merkel, Ingo was the first to have the idea of creating technology to protect from drone threats. Later he founded Dedrone with Jörg Lamprecht and Rene Seeber. At Dedrone Ingo is responsible for hardware development and production, as well as the company's accounting control.
Rene founded his first company together with Jörg Lamprecht while studying math and computer science at the University of Kassel. The company was later bought by Internet Security Systems (ISS) in 2004, and ISS was taken over by IBM in 2007. In 2009 he co-founded JouleX, which was acquired by Cisco in 2013, and he remained there as CTO of Cisco's EnergyWise technology until joining Dedrone. Today, Rene applies his experience as a founder and architect of complex, innovative software products in his role as CTO and manager of software and technology development at Dedrone.
