GelSight Secures $10M in Series B Funding Round


GelSight, a Waltham, Mass.-based developer of industrial 3D imaging solutions for the aerospace, automotive, and other electronics industries, raised $10m in Series B funding.

The round was led by Anzu Partners.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth.

Led by Kimo Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, GelSight provides GelSight Mobile™, a handheld instrument that precisely visualizes and measures the 3D topography of any surface in seconds, revealing microscopic structures. Its proprietary elastomeric sensor conforms to the surface topography of any material, including metals, composites, and glass to reveal the features of the surface regardless of ambient lighting conditions or material reflectivity. The GelSight Mobile system gives instant visual feedback along with position, depth, and other surface measurements with high spatial resolution down to the micron level.

In connection with this financing, GelSight added aviation executive David Hurley, US Navy Vice Admiral David Buss (Ret.), and US Air Force Lieutenant General Judith Fedder (Ret.) to its Board of Directors. Advisor Pierre Villeneuve, PhD, the cofounder of Equity Management Partners, has also joined the company’s Board.
