Düsseldorf German-American billionaire Peter Thiel and Berlin-based venture capitalist Project A are investing in drone company Quantum Systems. It’s a deal that promises Munich start-ups access to U.S. military knowledge — and that could spark discussion in the German start-up scene.

Former Bundeswehr soldier Florian Seibel founded the company in 2015 and can show what his technology is capable of in the face of a Russian invasion. 20 Quantum drones are currently searching the Russian military and providing Ukrainians with information about their position.
