Aerones has announced that it has secured $30 million in growth capital to scale its business globally. The funding round was co-led by Lightrock, a global growth equity investor, and Haniel, an European family-owned purpose-driven investor.
Further participation in the round, for the YCombinator-backed company, came from new investor Blume Equity, a climate-focused growth equity investor, and existing investors: Change Ventures, Mantas Mikuckas, Metaplanet, Pace Ventures and Future Positive Capital. This funding round will allow Aerones to grow its technical and sales functions, increase the number of field-deployed robot service teams, expand its presence in fast-growing markets including Africa and Australia, and bring new services to market.
