Startup’s Drones Eye Construction Sites

Krishna Sudarshan was a Goldman Sachs managing director until his younger son’s obsession with drones became his own, attracting him to the flying machines’ data-heavy business potential. Sudarshan quit Goldman after a decade in 2016 to found Aspec Scire, which pairs drones to a cloud service for construction and engineering firms to monitor their businesses.

A colleague from the banking giant joined as head of engineering and former colleagues invested in the startup. Business has taken flight. Since its launch, Aspec Scire has landed work with construction management firms, engineering firms and owners and developers, including a large IT services company, Sudarshan said.
