6 River Systems, Inc., a Boston, MA-based fulfillment automation platform for e-commerce and retail operations, secured $6m in seed funding.
The round was led by Seth Winterroth of early-stage venture fund Eclipse with participation from iRobot. In conjunction with the funding, Lior Susan, Eclipse Founder and General Partner, joined 6RS’ Board of Directors.
The company will use the funds to expand the engineering team and to support customer pilots already in progress.
Co-founded in 2015 by Jerome Dubois, Rylan Hamilton, and Christopher Cacioppo, 6RS provides a platform for e-commerce and retail operations to reduce the capital needed to automate fulfillment centers.
The company is currently working with select customers on pilots.
