Minnow Technologies, a Seattle, WA-based IoT startup that has developed a contact-free food delivery and pickup solution (called the Minnow Pickup Pod™), raised $2.2M in a seed funding round.
The round was led by Elevate Capital with participation from Portland Seed Fund and the venture capital arm of Lincoln Property Company, LPC Ventures. In addition to this financing, Minnow raised a $1.2M pre-seed round in 2018.
Led by Steven Sperry, CEO, Minnow provides IoT-enabled Pickup Pods that give a contact-free way to deliver or pick up food. They can be used anywhere that food is picked up, for example in restaurants and cafeterias, to provide a convenient pickup experience. The pods can also be used wherever food is delivered, to keep consumers and food delivery workers safer.
Minnow is accelerating production of its first commercial model, the Minnow P5 Pickup Pod, and is accepting pre-orders for the first batch of production units.
