That’s $55 million — Go Startup Nation!
This Series D round was led by Qumra Capital, a leading late-stage venture capital firm based out of Israel. It includes participation from existing key investors, including Insight Venture Partners, Eclipse Ventures, Munich Re Venture Capital, Qualcomm Ventures and Lerer Hippeau Ventures. With this round Augury has raised $106 million since its initial funding six years ago.
The company also announced new partnerships and capabilities to help its global customers gain the benefit of prescriptive diagnostics and machine insights, no matter where in the world they operate.
“We’ve seen significant and accelerating growth in our business, both before and during the global health crisis,” said Saar Yoskovitz, co-founder and CEO of Augury.
“We also continue to build a powerful ecosystem for Machine Health to deliver new forms of value for customers. Our partner and alliance network includes OEMs and services providers such as Grundfos, Carrier and Trane, insurance partner Munich Re, and innovative new partners such as DSV, which will leverage its global logistics network to enable replacement parts as a service, informed by Augury’s insights into potential machine failures.”
From every human and every machine, we here at Augury would like to say ‘thank you’ and let you know that we’re here to keep your machines running during this new normal. https://t.co/UGbI3NrLht #ThankYou #MachineHealth #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/ek0Ki6p2mr

Motti Kushnir, CEO of MOV.AI, said, “The new funding round recognizes MOV.AI’s vision for the collaborative robot industry. MOV.AI will continue to fortify its position as a leading company in the field of cobots. We are very excited to win our existing investors’ trust and for our new connection to SOMV that will allow us to develop our industrial automation market solution further.

“This development has led to a massive increase in the demand for automation systems and collaborative robots, which can integrate into existing facilities and work collaboratively with humans.”
Mov.AI lets autonomous robots work safely together with people and other robots in any environment at any scale.
