Matthew Sweeny is the CEO of Flirtey, the world’s leading drone delivery service.


Flirtey is a startup reinventing the delivery process for humanitarian, online retail and food delivery industries – with a mission to save lives and change lifestyles.


Originally from Australia, Sweeny was the first in his family to attend college where he received a degree in international relations and philosophy from the University of Sydney.
