Neura Robotics GmbH (“NEURA Robotics”), an emerging AI and robotics startup, announced today the closing of a $55 million funding round, led by European investors Lingotto (Exor N.V.), Vsquared Ventures, PRIMEPULSE and HV Capital.
NEURA Robotics has risen to become a global pioneer in cognitive robotics in just three years and claims innovation leadership in the industry. As the first company to combine AI and robotics, NEURA unveiled the world’s first market-ready cognitive cobot shortly after its founding. This robot, called MAiRA, is able to fully perceive its environment and people and acts autonomously. By combining all relevant sensors and components with artificial intelligence in one device, Neura Robotics offers its partners a platform for the joint development of applications for a wide range of sectors from industry to service and household. The resulting and steadily growing NEURAverse offers unmatched flexibility and cost efficiency in automation.
David Reger, Founder and CEO of Neura Robotics, said:
“Since our genesis in 2019, Neura Robotics has been working to push the boundaries of innovation in robotics by rethinking the subject with artificial intelligence and a platform approach, ushering in a new era in robotics. Today’s funding round enables us to keep up the pace in delivering on our visionary promises.“
Stefan Fritz, Partner at PRIMEPULSE: „Automation and robotics have huge potential in and for medium-sized businesses. It takes (needs) cooperative, decentralized and semi-autonomous robotic systems with a completely new approach to unlock (tap into) the many thousands of use cases. Neura Robotics has built a unique, vertically integrated hardware-software stack that is now conquering the market together with strong and experienced partners.”
