SWEA Singapore has published a new episode of its podcast “SWEA Podden” in which Helena Samsioe talks about coming up with the idea of starting Globhe, a global drone platform.

Since 2015, the platform has collected high-resolution images from 6,300 drones in 125 countries which are then sold to organizations and companies such as The United Nations and the World Bank.

These images have contributed to the monitoring of malaria-carrying mosquitoes in Malawi, East Africa, through photographically observing mosquito hatching sites.

Additionally, Helena touches upon her college time in Florida, work in San Diego, studies in Uppsala, joining women in the tech sector, the Swedish business climate and the innovation climate in Africa.
