Volatus Aerospace Adds Over 500,000 km of Oil & Gas Pipeline Right of Way Surveillance with Acquisition of Synergy Aviation Ltd.

Volatus Aerospace Corp.

Volatus Aerospace Corp. (TSXV: VOL) (OTCQB: VLTTF) ("Volatus" or "the Company") announced today that it has signed an arm's length definitive agreement dated Oct 12, 2022, to acquire Alberta-based Synergy Aviation Ltd. This acquisition will solidify Volatus’ position in Western Canada providing privileged access to much of the oil and gas industry. Synergy’s leadership in the sector combined with Volatus’ drone technology solutions will position the Company with a strong competitive advantage to introduce innovative, efficient, green, remotely operated drone solutions to fulfill regulatory and asset monitoring requirements. Founded in Alberta in 2014, Synergy Aviation is an industry leader in aerial surveillance, pipeline integrity monitoring, and specialized geomatics, patrolling and inspecting more than 500,000 KM of pipeline right of way stretching from the coast of British Columbia to the Manitoba/US border. The company provides Canada’s largest oil & gas producers and pipeline operators with uninterrupted, consistent and highly detailed right-of-way integrity data. “Pipeline inspection, much like other long linear inspection requirements, has traditionally been completed using crewed helicopters and small fixed wing aircraft,” said Glen Lynch, CEO of Volatus Aerospace. “Leveraging Synergy’s oil & gas presence combined with our existing pipeline operations in Ontario will allow us to introduce the power of innovative drone solutions to meet regulatory compliance and asset management requirements with improved efficiencies and a material reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.” “There are nearly 5 million kilometers of oil & gas pipeline in North America requiring annual inspections and, in many cases, weekly patrols to meet regulatory and asset management requirements,” said Todd Tkach, President of Synergy Aviation. “Becoming part of Volatus gives us the added geomatics capabilities, market reach, and the opportunity to disrupt traditional methods in this sector.” Synergy recorded unaudited revenues of $7 million with a 14% EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) during the first nine months of 2022 and is targeting year end revenues of $9 million. Under the terms of the agreement, Volatus will make an equity investment of $2.29 million in Synergy Aviation over the course of 10 months from closing in exchange for newly issued shares that will represent 51% of all outstanding shares. The investment will be used by Synergy for ongoing expansion activities. The transaction is scheduled to close on October 31 st conditional on satisfactory completion of due diligence, approval of the respective Board of Directors, and regulatory approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. Subject to operational and financial metric as defined in the definitive agreement, the Synergy investors will have an option, expiring in December 2024, to sell the remaining 49% equity to Volatus at the same valuation at Closing in exchange of Volatus shares based on 30 days VWAP (volume weighted average price) on date of Closing. This announcement marks another step in a series of interrelated technology, regulatory, and commercial milestones intended to drive and scale the commercialization of drone technologies. Recent announcements include the launch of the Aerieport drone nesting station, regulatory authority to remotely operate a drone at an airport, the remote operation of drones in Las Vegas from our operations center 3,000 km away, and most recently, a collaboration agreement with Accipiter Radar to provide for larger scale deconfliction between drones and low flying aircraft. The combination of these events with other Volatus technologies provides large scale opportunities in oil and gas, power distribution, and rail throughout the markets served by Volatus. About Volatus Aerospace: Volatus Aerospace Corp. is a leading provider of integrated drone solutions throughout North America and growing into Latin America and globally. Volatus serves civil, public safety, and defense markets with imaging and inspection, security and surveillance, equipment sales and support, training, as well as R&D, design, and manufacturing. Through our subsidiary, Volatus Aviation, we are introducing green and innovative drone solutions to supplement and replace traditional aircraft and helicopters for long-linear inspections such as pipeline, energy, rail, and cargo services. Volatus is committed to carbon neutrality; the fostering of a safe, equitable and inclusive workplace; and responsible governance.

With New Study, Assembly Asks Marketers: “Do you really know Gen Z?”

Assembly

Gen Z Decoded, an all-new study packed with first-hand insights about Generation Z, curated over the course of the past year, is out from global media agency Assembly. Unlike previous studies that seek to understand this evolving and influential group as one whole audience, Assembly prompts brands and marketers to consider this: Gen Z is a series of journeys, each individual and nuanced, dependent on the experiences of Zs in their particular stage of life. Available for download here. The study taps into learnings from Assembly client campaigns [Supercuts, Diesel, and Converse], first-party research powered by Appinio across six markets (UK, US, France, Germany, China, Korea), and additional expert insights curated from Assembly’s Europe Strategy & Insights team. It additionally includes 8 essential principles for brands to build meaningful relationships with Gen Z, as well as a foundational growth plan following the agency’s “Find, Change, Grow” methodology. “As they look to discover themselves, Gen Z is going on an internal journey, often staying fluid and flexible with their own identity,” said Jennifer Brown, Strategy Manager, Europe at Assembly. “They’re in an ever-changing state of discovery across different life stages, so a one-size-fits-all approach from brands isn’t going to work.” The study identifies one of Gen Z’s 6 primary characteristics as “ shapeshifters ”, with 78% of Gen Z believing that people should be able to define their own identity instead of being labelled by society. The fluidity in their identities also extends to their relationships with brands, with 55% of Gen Z stating that they aren’t loyal to any brands. Other key characteristics that distinguish Gen Z: Globally Connected: Gen Z have experienced connectivity unlike any other generation before them. 77% of Gen Z say they have never met an online friend in person, further emphasizing the emergence of digital-only relationships Passionate Disruptors: While they aren’t the first generation with grand ambitions to change the world, Gen Z is the generation that has been armed with the Internet to help them do so. 70% of Gen Z believe they can take part in a social movement through social media Entrepreneurs: By 2025, Gen Z will make up 27% of the workforce, though they’re not necessarily only interested in conventional career paths. 42% of Gen Z say they have a “side hustle” and express wanting to disrupt the way jobs work in the future, many envisioning themselves to be their own bosses Purposeful: While living much of their lives on the internet, Gen Z are also intentional about how and where they are spending their time online, and with who. 27% of Gen Z spend less time on platforms with ads, and 55% of Gen Z in the 18-25 age group are experiencing social media fatigue Vulnerable: Despite their confidence and tenacity, Gen Z put enormous pressure on themselves to carry through on their values; and also despite being so digitally connected, 79% of Gen Z express feeling lonely. “Our advice to brands is: go on the journey with Gen Z and don’t stop learning. It’s all about continuous testing, learning, and adapting, because Gen Z will continue to evolve, so brands should do the same,” said Kristie Naha-Biswas, Head of Strategy & Planning, Europe at Assembly. Access Assembly's Gen Z Decoded here. ABOUT ASSEMBLY: Assembly is the modern global omnichannel media agency, bringing data, talent, and technology together to find the change that fuels growth for the best brands on the planet. Our approach connects big, bold brand stories with integrated, global media capabilities that deliver performance and drive large-scale business growth.

5 Best Resume Writing Services: Reviews of the Professional Companies Near You

Resume Builders

Getting started on a job does not come automatically. It begins with an application process for the same role. And a major part of this procedure is submitting a well-written resume. Otherwise called a CV, your resume is one of the essential documents you present in a job search or application for opportunities. As a matter of fact, it is the most important document in the entire procedure. It can make or mar your application process for that fellowship, postgraduate studies, internship, or other work-related bids. Thus, you need your resume to be in top form consistently. But here's the twist, not everyone knows how to write a resume. It is a technical document. Thus, you might find it challenging to write. In fact, if you do, sometimes you have a greater chance of shortchanging yourself. Why? Because it might not pass the ATS. That is the Application Tracking System. And guess what? Most companies now use this tech mechanism to weed through irrelevant and not-well-written resumes submitted through their application portals. Do you want to be a part of these unscreened resumes?

Ordering from them means that you would be buying from a platform that has a lot of great reviews from clients in the past and present. These feedbacks are not only from resume writing. They are also gotten via remarkable delivery on cover letters, CVs, personal statements, statements of purpose, etc. If you want to know one of the most impressive things about this 101Resumes, then the seamless ordering process will stand out. The interface is easy to navigate. It allows you to move freely and make fewer mistakes while ordering from them.

However, the registration and information-gathering process should take an average of 4 minutes. So, with a uniquely simple interface and stress-free ordering process, you are ready to go! Furthermore, 101Resumes has one of the market's considerably fair resume writing prices. With just $99, you can get one of the best resumes in the market written for you. And the prices, as with other online writing services, vary depending on your grade. That, the career level for which you are writing the resume would largely determine the price range with which your work would be written. But not only that, other factors could affect the price of your work. One is if the deadline for which you need the resume is shorter than the usual time that the platform stipulates that the work would be ready. Thus, you might have to pay an extra fee to fast-track the writing. Hence, the price is jerked up. Also, 101Resumes stands as a specialized company. They maintain writing solely career-related technical documents. That is, resumes, cover letters, and CVs. Thus, seeing that their expert writers are targeted in that direction, they churn out more quality works based on this expertise than other services that render additional services. So, you can be sure that more attention is paid to details. And by the way, it takes an average of 4 days for the CV to be delivered. And with this level of speed, the quality is not compromised. It sure would make you look good before any prospective employer looks through the resume. #3. STUDDIT Studdit is that one-stop shop that caters to all your writing needs and particularly provides you with excellent technical and federal resume writing services. With hundreds of reviews lauding their praise in the market, they would get your CV written from scratch or take it from where it is to where you need it to be. Their presence in the market speaks of possibilities. They have shown many new online writing services that a platform can have students and job applicants flock to their websites to get their resume writing done. And guess what? They always deliver excellently. This resume writing platform is available to take all writing services because of its team of professional freelance writers. They are simply good at what they do. Thus, it makes it easier to get high-quality work from them every time they write. A good thing here is that Studdit has a great in-house culture of treating their writers well. Thus, they are more than enthusiastic about delivering promptly as they are given tasks. Sources note that you will never be given a new order to work on as a writer unless you finish a previous one on your hands. Writers are rewarded when they bring clients to the platform. So, as a person ordering, you can rest assured that your work is being handled by people keen to do their work. Hence, you can be sure of a great writing outcome. Furthermore, if you are looking to explore a stressless option for ordering your resume online, Studdit is that place. How so? Their website makes it super-easy to get your orders across. You do not have to sweat due to complications and complexities during the ordering process. Everything is straightforward. The steps to order usually include picking the type of essay (in this case, it would be a resume), specifying the details of the resume, choosing the deadline, selecting the writer you'd like to work on your order, and lastly, providing the payment. And to cap it all up is their financial policy. They are the cheapest resume writers in the industry. With just $10, you can have a great resume delivered to you. And, of course, the price ranges depend on what you need. For example, the price mentioned above works best for high schoolers. However, for professional CVs, that would be about $20. Anyone conscious of the market's price trends, especially among online writing services, will attest to this being a low price. And it does not in any way affect the excellence of the delivery. #4. 99PAPERS 99Papers has left a strong footprint in the market as one of the strongest online writing service brands. They are not new to the space. Thus, they have many reviews to their credit. Many a client have established a trust connection with them over the years. And the reason for this is not far-fetched. It is hinged upon that they deliver premium quality jobs when their work is ordered. They are not just fundamental in their approach to customer satisfaction. They are with you every step until your job gets to the finished stage. Why are they trusted in the market? Because they have distinguished themselves when it comes to pricing, discount programs, excellent deliveries, and outstanding customer satisfaction. These are basic things to note when you want to order from any professional executive resume writing service around. The excellent delivery they pride themselves in is owing to a competent team of professional writers. And even though 99Papers has academic writing as the major aspect of their writing services, they still offer additional career-related services such as personal statements and resume writing. And with expert freelance writers from New York not being novices in the market, they are reliable to churn in excellent deliveries consistently on the platform. Another major reason most people patronize them is the pricing. With $12.60, you would get a standard resume with 15-day delivery. And for their premium plan, you get to pay $22.05 for their 15-day delivery resume. And just like many other platforms, many dynamics are at play around the pricing. A good example is a deadline. You are charged extra fees if it is shorter than what's stipulated in the service. The same goes for your career level. A high-schooler resume's price is lower than an executive-level CV. And with many customer reviews online, you will conclude that 99Papers is the hub of high-quality resumes for executives. Furthermore, this specific platform has a bidding system where you pick the writer that works on your resume. It is after this phase that you get charged on their website. And yes, they have a loyalty program that affords you a 5% discount on each resume you order. And you can make use of this discount on future orders as well. However, this discount only lasts for a total of 5 years. To get access to a lifetime discount, you might need to prep your wallet for that. #5. IVORY RESEARCH Getting the best writing done for your academic pursuits has never been easier. With Ivory Research, they take your writings from where it is to where you desire them to be. Especially Curriculum Vitae (CV), resumes, personal statements, dissertations, cover letters, theses, and other academic writings. Technical writings like these are their forte. And in the UK, they have established their brand as a valuable asset for every student and non-student seeking to get premium work done. They exist to help you achieve your academic, business, or even personal goals. Thus, they have curated a team of specialist writers who are academics themselves.

Resume writing is the act of creating your resume. As simple as this sounds, it fully captures the entire process. A resume in itself is a formal document that iterates your qualifications for a specific role you are looking to apply for. It highlights the most relevant information in your career pursuits that positions you as the best candidate for the position you are applying for. It is mainly accompanied by a cover letter expressing your interest in applying for that role. Noteworthy is the fact that most recruiters advocate for resumes to be one-paged or two-paged at most. Writing a resume is a process that requires careful detailing of specifics. This information is tailored particularly to the given role being applied for. Thus, as much as you could have a general resume, it is advisable to have specific resumes for each job application. The writers in these services help you highlight the best possible qualifications, background information, job history, certifications, and other details that make you a perfect fit for the role you are looking to occupy. They take your information and convert it into a page that helps to endear you to the recruiter. Resume writing involves some form of technical templates to follow. Many recruiters will prefer it to be chronological. That is, it contains your recent job history in the order you took them on, as it relates to the current role. Also, it includes neatly arranged headings and sub-headings, margins, active language uses, and highlights of important achievements. Note that a resume makes use of professional fonts. How much does it cost to hire someone to write a resume? First, hiring someone to write a resume is a promising venture everyone should invest in. However, how much that costs now depends on each writer hired to write the resume. To write your resume, each writing service charges differently. However, one thing that stays consistent is the excellence of the delivery. The price also differs based on the peculiarities of the work. For instance, the price of writing a resume with a shorter deadline would be different than that which was delivered on the number of days stipulated by the writing platform. The same goes for the type of grade the resume is written for. The career level is a major determinant of the price range of hiring a writer on some of these professional writing services to craft an excellent resume. The price for a high schooler is way less than that of an executive client. Further, as noted earlier, different companies write resumes for different prices. 99Papers, for example, writes theirs for $12.60 with a 15-day delivery timeline. While with PaperHelp, you can get an excellent resume starting from $45. For Studdit, their price for a professional resume is about $20. So, it all boils down to checking out what platform works best for you. Their offering for their prices also matters. So, how much you should pay a resume service near you is not fixed or static. It depends on what each writing service offers and if you can get more for less. Is it worth paying for resume service? Definitely! One might even say it is more than worth paying for resume service. Writing a resume is a technical job. And thus, it requires a lot of expertise to be done well. Just like a dissertation, you might be low on chances of scoring high if you are writing it for the first time, with little prior knowledge on how to go about it. However, if an experienced writer takes on the job for you, your chances of being an A student drastically increase. Similarly, a resume is a major document you need to get the job of your dreams. So, if it is done shabbily, you might not get the desired result of getting a good flavor from the recruiter. It just makes sense, doesn't it? If you do not have the capacity or required skillset, you outsource it to persons who are experts at it. Thus, you position yourself to enjoy the results of getting your resume written by a specialist. Many writers in the writing services listed above have crafted CVs and resumes that landed a job for clients. Thus, it makes it worth it to pay for resume services. What is the best resume writing service in 2022? There are many writing services in the market. But one that stands out among the pack is PaperHelp. They are the best resume services near me and you in 2022. And the reason for their distinctiveness is not hard to decipher. They take their clients' satisfaction seriously.

You are never in the dark about the progress of your work. You are given adequate feedback per time on where your work has gotten to. And you get to manage your order through email, SMS, the PaperHelp app, and via Facebook Messenger. What is the affordable resume writing service? Pricing for each writing platform is different. And as noted above, there are many factors responsible for different price changes and jerks. However, in the resume writing service industry today, the most affordable remains Studdit. With $20, you get an exceptionally high-quality resume delivered to you. And, of course, like many other platforms, customized deadlines, client requirements, and career levels can increase this price. However, you could have a standard resume written for you by an expert writer for just $10. And you will not worry about less quality. Some of their writers deliver ahead of the delivery date and still get a stellar job done. Thus, you are still provided with high-quality work with the super-cheap payment. And alongside these are freebies and several discounts their clients enjoy. For example, you can get up to 15% discount on your first purchase with them. Further, you have excellent customer support throughout your ordering journey with them. What is the best resume writing service in Australia? If you are a student or job applicant in Australia, a very reliable platform to get your resume written is 99Papers. Many things make them significant for the Australian market.

How Carbyne Closed an Oversubscribed Series C in the Middle of Financial Market Turmoil

Carbyne

This is a challenging year for tech companies, especially for entrepreneurs seeking funding for their next phase of growth. According to Pitchbook, VC funding was down 8% in the first six months of the year, driven by the sliding shares of mature tech companies. The NASDAQ composite index is down close to 25% through September. And yet, despite the liquidity crunch, Carbyne secured $56 million to invigorate the public safety industry with modern cloud-native technology. While I’ve raised capital at Carbyne and previously managed companies through the IPO process, this cycle was remarkably different. For Carbyne, this round will help us accelerate our global expansion and help us achieve our target of covering one billion people by 2024. Here are some important lessons I learned while closing this round in today’s treacherous fundraising environment. Expect a Roller Coaster Ride As we entered 2022, the financial markets were riding at all-time highs, and investors were looking to deploy their surplus cash in high-return opportunities like those offered by startups. Within a matter of weeks, the markets cratered, and pessimism spread rapidly across the financial markets. Unable to fulfill their own financial commitments, fund managers were looking to rationalize their positions, and the flight to safety was in full swing. We started the round right when the financial markets started to tumble, not expecting it would last throughout the year. A couple of times, the deal was on the cusp of closing and then, at the last moment, there was a surprise turn in the process. Investors’ sentiment changed almost overnight due to the macro environment, and we went back to square one. The key to riding the roller coaster of the fundraising process is to stay focused on investor feedback and to expect the unexpected. Be Flexible, Adapt Quickly to Changes, and Focus on the Right Investors Companies like Carbyne that successfully navigated the volatile markets of early 2022 got a few critical things right. For one, we realized that the tide was turning, and we adapted to the changes quickly. We adjusted our ask to investors, whose portfolios were reeling from the downturn. While we focused on the bull market case, we developed a base case and also bear case scenarios. Scenario modeling is key in a challenging market like this one – it’s crucial to show financial models that span from bull to bear case. We also continued engaging with more investors in our pipeline, targeting potential partners whose investing mandates would align with our mission and who would believe in our vision and guide us toward our North Star. Companies in fundraising mode should focus on finding investors who understand their business and are excited to join in their journey. Value choosing the right partner, even if they are not the highest bidder. Build Plan B and C Startups should always keep an ear to the ground and wake up earlier to shifting investor sentiment. Build lots of wiggle room into the process and prepare for unexpected delays within the plan. Right now, having just a plan A is not sufficient. Companies need to build plan B and plan C. Build these plans for base and bear cases without changing your vision and mission. We started the process a lot earlier and kept plans A, B, and C ready to execute. As they say, plan for the worst and prepare for the best. Be Open to Different Structures for the Round In cash-constrained environments, when it becomes difficult to raise equity, startups should calculate the cost of equity and the cost of debt. Be open to adjusting the size of the round, show investors your flexibility in the round size, and most importantly, build flexibility into your financial models. Don’t be afraid to explore alternative ways to raise capital, such as debt. We should dispel the stigma associated with raising debt financing since it can bring unique advantages. The cost of debt is usually lower than equity in the long run if you are confident in hitting your financial targets and forecasts. Furthermore, debt financing has the added benefit of not diluting existing investments. The environment today is much different than it was only a year ago. The key to successfully reaching your funding goals is to be agile and flexible while staying true to your mission.
