HAX’s autonomous robot manufacturer Avidbots (HAX 04) recently raised $70M in a Series C funding round led by Jeneration Capital. The Series C also included capital from SOSV, GGV Capital, True Ventures, Kensington Capital Partners, Next 47,  BDC Capital, Golden Ventures, BMO Capital Partners, Golden Vision Capital, and Nicola Wealth.
