Financing round: ANYbotics
ANYbotics closed CHF 20 million Series A financing round!
Our portfolio company ANYbotics was a spin off from the Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule Zürich(ETH).The company has developed ANYmal, a four-legged robot that can see, hear and move around in challenging environments. In the future, it will inspect and monitor industrial plants or canalizations, for example, as well as take on dangerous maintenance tasks. Today, the ANYmal has already worked autonomously in Zurich's canalization system and carried out fully autonomous monitoring missions on offshore oil platforms. ANYbotics also cooperates with companies from the construction and energy industries, as Péter Fankhauser, co-founder and CEO of ANYbotics, explains.
To accelerate the large-scale rollout of its robotic solution, ANYbotics is entering into another round of financing with a group of well-known investors. The round is led by Swisscom Ventures and co-investors including us, EquityPitcher Ventures and Ace & Company as well as others.
We are proud to have been one of the first venture capital investors to recognize the potential of ANYbotics' cutting-edge technology prior to Series A and look forward to further collaboration with the ANYbotics team.
