Viam Raises $30M in Series A Funding

Viam, a New York-based robotics platform provider, raised $30M in Series A funding.

The round, which brings total funding to $42m, was led by Tiger Global, with participation from returning investor Union Square Ventures, and Battery Ventures.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its headcount and accelerate R&D to enhance its platform.

Founded in 2020 by MongoDB, Inc. cofounder and longtime CTO Eliot Horowitz, Viam is a hardware and language agnostic platform that allows developers to create, configure, and control any robot from anywhere. The company is working with a curated set of partners in a private alpha, and is preparing for a public launch later this year.
