Rahul Tiwari

Robotics Engineer

Rahul Tiwari is CEO of Spooky Action, a global robotics firm that builds the longest flying drones in the world and uses them to bring the internet to remote areas. A college dropout, Rahul left his engineering program at Purdue in 2017 to design and prototype a tethered anti-poaching watchtower drone that was deployed in South Africa only two months after the initial idea was conceived. His heavy-lift aircraft are used to provide internet coverage after disasters, for events and to support rural communities across the planet.
