Meet Dwight Neptune, 22-year-old CEO and co-founder of Beagle Drones. Neptune began studying electrical engineering in high school and picked up drones as a hobby. When he and his co-founders built their first drone, it actually caught on fire because it wasn’t wired properly. The New Jersey-based company has come a long way since. Neptune dropped out of college after three semesters to work on Beagle full time. Beagle is currently in the process of raising $1 million at a $4 million valuation.
