Portfolio Company Flirtey Raises $16M in Venture Capital to Accelerate Growth as a Pioneer in “Delivery as a Service” with Drones
We were one of the first investors in Drone pioneer Flirtey in 2015. Since then the company has scored many firsts in the “Delivery as a Service” market, including some of the first flights approved by the FAA.
They have just raised their Series A round and it was led by Menlo Ventures and Qualcomm Ventures, who were also seed investors subsequent to our investment. This round was also joined by Chris Sacca’s Lowercase Capital, Y Combinator and World Innovation Lab, a firm that counts among its limited partners the Japanese airline ANA, Goodwater Capital, Amity Ventures and Partech Ventures.
We invested in Work Truck Solutions in 2014 together with other members of the InSync Angel Network. They continue to scale rapidly; now they have over 500 dealers using their SaaS solution. They have also launched locator and inventory management services for other stakeholders in the industry such as body manufacturers and distributors. As a result, they have validated the position as the supply chain platform for the Work Truck industry. Plans to scale even more rapidly in 2017 are well under way.
Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:ESIO) acquired portfolio company Visicon Technologies in August, 2016. We invested in Visicon first in 2007 and members have made subsequent investments. The acquisition is mentioned in this press release.
It appears a good match for ESIO and Visicon. Visicon’s machine vision based products and services are designed specifically to deliver the high throughput, high accuracy, measurement and defect detection systems that enable a business to reduce inspection costs, improve manufacturing processes and increase quality, while ESIO is an innovator of laser-based manufacturing solutions for the microtechnology industry,
