Vecna Robotics, a Waltham, Mass.-based workflow orchestration and self-driving forklift provider, raised $50m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Blackhorn Ventures, with participation from new investors Highland Capital and Fontinalis Partners, and additional funding from existing investors Drive Capital and Tectonic Ventures. With this investment, Trevor Zimmerman of Blackhorn Ventures and Bob Davis of Highland Capital will join Vecna Robotics’ Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the new funds to expand its presence and accelerate the development of new product offerings.
