Keller Rinaudo

Keller Rinaudo is cofounder and CEO of Zipline, which is building drone delivery for global public health customers. Zipline has partnered with the country of Rwanda to make all last-mile deliveries of blood to half of the transfusing facilities in the country using drones. The long-term vision for this project is to put each of the 11 million citizens of Rwanda within a 15- to 30-minute delivery of any essential medical product they need, no matter where they live. Prior to Zipline, Keller was a software engineer and a professional rock climber. A graduate of Harvard University, Keller built computers out of RNA and DNA that can operate in human cells as molecular doctors. He published this research in _Nature Biotechnology_, becoming one of the youngest first authors in that publication’s history. You can find him on Twitter as @kellerrinaudo.
