Embention, a portfolio company of the Axon Innovation Growth IV Fund, the only financial investor in the business, has just signed a commercial agreement with Amazon. Amazon has selected Embention’s autopilot technology to be installed in all the drones it is developing for aerial package delivery.

The Spanish technology company will be a key player in the ultra-fast aerial delivery service that the group founded by Jeff Bezos has already launched in the United States and is expected to reach the United Kingdom by the end of the year.

Based in Alicante, Embention is a world leader in the design and manufacture of autopilots and components for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and urban aerial mobility (UAM) solutions, including eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) solutions that aim to revolutionise urban transport. The company works with aircraft manufacturers worldwide, installing the Veronte autopilot system or advising on developing customised solutions.

Its products are essential for industrial use in drones (in sectors such as firefighting, agriculture, or package delivery, among others). The company has more than 500 customers in over 70 countries (95% of turnover outside Spain) and a robust pipeline of new customers. These include Toyota of Japan, Airbus, and IAI of Israel.

The Axon Innovation Growth IV Fund entered the technology group in 2022 by injecting €7.5m of capital, with which it obtained the aforementioned minority stake. In the same year, the company went public on the Euronext Access Paris market (ticker: MLUAV), a market for small growth companies.
