French-born Corentin Guillo founded his company Bird.i in Glasgow in 2016 with the desire to democratise access to satellite imagery and its potential insights.

The company grew via two investment rounds and was consistently named one of Scotland’s top “startups to watch” before pivoting in 2018 towards providing real-time satellite imagery to the construction and infrastructure industries. Bird.i was a finalist for “Startup of the Year” at the 2018 Scottish Tech Startup Awards.
