The Visionary

Jörg Lamprecht, born in 1969, is one of Germany's most experienced and successful entrepreneurs. He and two other students founded his first company, ONLY Solutions, while they were still in college studying mathematics and computer science. That software company really lived up to its name by developing the first image search engine for the Internet. In 2001 the founders sold ONLY Solutions to Biodata AG. In that same year Jörg founded Cobion AG, once again collaborating with a founder from his first company along with a new partner. This second venture created content security software that was sold worldwide, with offices in the U.S., UK and China. Cobion received funding from prominent venture capital investors and ultimately was acquired in 2004 by U.S.-based Internet Security Systems (ISS) – now part of IBM. Jörg served for two years as Vice President of Central Europe for ISS and grew the company by 25 percent annually.

In 2011 Jörg discovered the growing drone market and founded Aibotix, a manufacturer of premium drones for surveyors and engineers. Aibotix grew very quickly and became the market leader with customers in more than 100 countries. In February 2014 Aibotix was bought by Swedish Hexagon Group, a global provider of information technology.

Thanks to Jörg's experience in security and drones, Dedrone was able to grow globally right from the beginning. He succeeded in winning over 250 partners in a very short time, and within only 18 months landed $12.9 million in venture capital funding from renowned investors such as Target Partners and Menlo Ventures.

The Engineer

In September 2013, when a small toy drone crashed into the stage right in front of Angela Merkel during an election campaign, Dr. Ingo Seebach was the first person to have the idea of creating technology to protect from civilian drones. Six months later he founded Dedrone GmbH together with Jörg Lamprecht and Rene Seeber.

Ingo, born in 1974, studied industrial engineering at the Braunschweig University of Technology and received his PhD in surface engineering at the Frauenhofer Institute. After having been stationed in Hamburg, Norway and England through his work with the international aluminum company Norsk Hydro ASA since 2008, he is now chief operating officer of SEETECH GmbH. The company, based in Kassel, is one of the leading suppliers of industrial products with branches in the USA, Russia, China and Poland.

The Software Architect

With Dedrone, Rene Seeber has now established his fourth company. He founded Only Solutions GmbH together with Jörg Lamprecht and another fellow student in 1996 while studying math and computer science at the University of Kassel.

In 1998, the company was renamed to Cobion and was later bought by Internet Security Systems (ISS) in 2004. Rene stayed on board for two more years as chief scientist. ISS was taken over by IBM in 2007 — in the very same year, Rene and Jörg went on to found Qitera GmbH. In 2009, as co-founder and CTO, he established the software company JouleX; the company was taken over by Cisco in 2013. From 2013 to his start at Dedrone in September 2015, Rene was CTO of Cisco's EnergyWise technology.

Today, Rene applies his long-term experience as a founder and architect of complex, innovative software products in his role as CTO and manager of the software and technology development at Dedrone.
