SAN FRANCISCO, May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Enview, a pioneer in the scalable processing of 3D geospatial data, today announced that they've raised $12M in an oversubscribed round of funding initially announced last month.
Statkraft Ventures, a Europe-based, energy-focused Venture Capital Fund, joined lead investor BrightCap Ventures with additional participation from Ahoy Capital and existing investors Crosslink Capital and Skype Co-Founder Toivo Annus.
"We´re excited to invest into an inspiring team and tech at Enview ready to further increase data-processing and analytics capabilities of their customers working around critical energy infrastructure. We do see a clear need for modelling the world in 3D in different verticals and are proud to back Enview on their journey of applying this tech to additional use cases, customers and geographies," said Alexander Küppers from Statkraft Ventures.
Enview has built the world's most scalable AI platform to enable rapid, automated classification of 3D point clouds. Enview's unique methods for processing 3D data were specifically designed to work where traditional 2D image processing fails. The ability to process 3D data at unmatched scale and speed enables governments and energy companies to create digital twins of their physical world, rapidly identify change, and reduce time to action.
"Even in these unprecedented times, we're honored to see the support and enthusiasm for Enview from both the public and private sectors," said Enview CEO and co-founder San Gunawardana.
