Auspion Raises in $15M Series A Funding

GuRu WirelessAuspion, Inc. – now GuRu Wireless, Inc., a Pasadena, GA-based provider of room-scale, multi-watt, multi-device, safe wireless power-at-a-distance using millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology, raised $15m in Series A funding.

Backers included Kairos Ventures and Bold Capital Partners.

The startup will use the funds to complete commercialization, obtain FCC approval of its first products and add new management and engineering talent.

GuRu is a millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology company developing products for business and people who want to stop running wires, changing batteries, or plugging things in. The company’s first products will deliver electric power through the air.
GuRu’s technology is based on work of Professor Ali Hajimiri at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). During the past decade, Hajimiri and his co-founders Florian Bohn and Behrooz Abiri developed radio-frequency systems capable of sending energy over distance, including collecting solar power in space and transmitting the energy wirelessly to Earth. Along the way, the team developed multiple generations of their novel radio frequency (RF) systems, each of them more integrated and powerful than its predecessor.
Since its founding in 2017, the company has transformed its core technology into commercially viable solutions while operating in stealth mode.
