I’m excited to welcome inVia Robotics—the provider of next-generation warehouse automation solutions—to the M12 portfolio as lead of their Series C round.
Global ecommerce accelerated exponentially during the pandemic as more consumers shopped online to adhere to stay-at-home mandates. Top retailers have set a highly competitive pace for fulfillment and delivery with heavily automated warehouses. Across the board, retailers are eager to pursue automation, motivated by customer expectations of speedy delivery as well as the cost and time efficiencies. But for smaller retailers, or distributed networks of micro fulfillment centers, the implementation of high CAPEX robotics has been inaccessible. inVia offers an easy entry point for companies of all sizes to pursue the business opportunity of automation with a flexible subscription-based service.
