"My mission came from seeing first hand in my travels how economic activity declines in perfect step with moving away from large urban centres with sufficient infrastructure, and seeing the economic stagnation that would follow.
More than one billion people today do not have direct access to paved roads or even runways. This fundamentally affects the lives they live, without access to the basic things you and I take for granted, like medical supplies.”

Spencer Horne is the founder of Cloudline, a remote delivery startup that uses autonomous airships to bring essential goods to the hardest-to-reach parts of the world. 

He is a graduate of African Leadership Academy and Harvard College, where he trained as a mechanical engineer. His current work combines his passion for aviation with his mission to address systemic inequities around the world.
