Bono Joins the Zipline Board
U2 frontman and philanthropist Bono has joined the board of medical drone delivery specialists Zipline.
After becoming a global superstar with U2, Bono has spent the last twenty or so years working in sustainable development. Back in 2016, he co-founded The Rise Fund, a $2 billion VC fund that specializes in startups delivering “complete returns”— social and environmental change, not just financial results.
Earlier this summer, The Rise Fund invested in Zipline to fund the drone delivery company’s ambitious expansion plans.
