Just a few months after announcing a successful fundraising campaign of 1.3 billion FCFA, William Elong hits the international market with his made-in-Cameroon drones. This is barely a year after Will & Brothers, a company William Elong founded in Douala, unveiled its first drone.
According to WeeTracker, Will & Brothers’ drones have since, drawn orders from clients in both West and Central Africa. The company equally secured up to 50 contracts across the continent. Some of the contracts include surveillance work at the Olembe Stadium currently constructed by the Italian firm, Piccini. They also monitor a number of agricultural projects run by CRIFAT.
Besides producing drones which serve geographical and agricultural purposes, the company also produces terrestrial drones. These drones are ideal for security surveillance. Moreover, they are used in finding bombs, making out landmines, and even detecting gas leaks in mines.
Interestingly, the Cameroonian tech entrepreneur has spread his wings into Europe after establishing Algo Drone Holding in Essen, Germany in 2018. Going forward, the plan is to generate more funds and enter markets in the U.S. and other parts of Europe.
William Elong continues to promote Cameroon and also Africa as a whole. With his fast-rising tech company, he is building high-tech made-in-Cameroon drones from start to finish.
