This latest partnership represents Flexiv’s commitment to bringing its adaptive robotic solutions to North America. By selecting its distributors and integrators, Flexiv can develop its market presence and provide a holistic support package to its customers, ensuring they are aided on every step of their automation journey.
In July, Flexiv closed a Series B+ funding round with an investment of nearly $100 million. According to the company, the latest investment makes the company a unicorn startup.
Flexiv spun out of Stanford University in 2016. It was founded by Shiquan Wang, now the CEO, Xiyang Yeh, now the CTO, and Shuyun Chung, now the chief robotics scientist. In 2020, Flexiv brought in over $100 million in a Series B round of funding, and it brought in $22 million in Series A funding in 2019.
