Louis Ziskin – Game of Drones

After serving 12 consecutive years in federal prison for the largest MDMA bust in history, Louis Ziskin decided to take the world by swarm… of drones that is. His company, DropIn, Inc pairs on-demand drone pilots with insurance companies, enabling customers to leverage streaming video and high-res photos and achieve better insight into auto and property damage. A first of its kind, Ziskin recently closed over $2M in funding, a handful of major insurance providers as clients, and close to 4000 drone pilots around the world. On this episode, Louis helps us imagine the parallels of prison life with entrepreneurial life, discusses his philanthropic efforts, and walks us through his unique perspective on business.
