Robo-delivery developer Starship Technologies has secured an additional $90M in funding to broaden its services globally.
Founded in 2014 by the creators of Skype (dang, how long has it been since you heard THAT name?), Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis, the company focuses on last-mile delivery with little cooler-sized delivery robots.
Starship's L4 autonomous robots, having completed over 6M trips, deliver various items from meals to important documents across 80 locations worldwide, including the US, UK, and Germany. This new funding, co-led by Plural and Iconical, will fuel further expansion and technological advancements in AI, wireless charging, and other delivery innovations.
With a focus on sustainability, Starship's robots offer an energy-efficient delivery solution, underlining the company's commitment to reducing carbon emissions and enhancing daily life through convenient, autonomous delivery services.
Usually, self-driving tech makes us worried about car crashes. This one makes us worried about the resurgence of highwaymen.
