Viabot Sweeps up $6M Seed to Scale Robotic Platform Across the United States
Viabot Sweeps up $6M Seed from SOSV, Baseline Ventures, Morado Ventures, and Grit Ventures.
Viabot, a 2018 HAX company, announced today that they have raised a USD $6M seed round to scale their suite of commercial robots to properties across the United States.
Investors in this round included HAX's fund SOSV, as well as Baseline Ventures, Morado Ventures, and Grit Ventures.
Viabot's first use case targets autonomous sweeping for strategic clients like property manager Cushman and Wakefield, but their RUNO platform is modular by design, and will allow their robots to scale to tackle landscaping and other property management needs.
“There’s often a thought that one robot can do one thing — robots are fine for a single function. It’s possible to make robots do more, and industry needs to start making robots more efficient,” said Viabot co-founder and CEO Gregg Ratanaphanyarat.
