HUMACAO, Puerto Rico, June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Cat Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RCAT) ("Red Cat'' or the "Company"), a hardware enabled software provider to the drone industry, announced that it was establishing Enterprise and Consumer segments in order to sharpen the Company's focus on the unique opportunities in each sector of the drone industry.
