SkySpecs, an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based automated infrastructure inspection company, raised $8m in Series B financing.
The round was led by Statkraft Ventures with participation from UL Ventures and Capital Midwest with follow-on investments from Venture Investors, Huron River Ventures and additional existing investors.
The company will use the funds to scale international operations and develop inspection software.
