The latest round comes from private equity firm InterAlphen Partners. InterAlphen’s investment in Neura will bolster its growth and expansion into the US market. Neura is currently on track to bringing a multi-purpose humanoid robot to the market.
Robots based on Neura’s robotics platform are able to see, hear, and perceive touch. Combined with reflexive sensory processing, these capabilities are essential for autonomous and predictive action. The company’s first market-ready cognitive collaborative robot (cobot) was MAiRA. MAiRA is autonomous and can fully perceive its environment and the humans it comes into contact with.
“NEURA Robotics represents one of the most compelling companies we’ve seen in our careers,” InterAlpen founder Stephen George said. “Their mission of empowering humanity with robotics is highly aligned with InterAlpen’s sustainable impact mission. We believe that the amazing products and partnerships that the team has created will power NEURA to become a global industry leader in the rising field of collaborative robotics.”
Now, the company offers a broad product line which includes cobots and mobile robots. Along with MAiRA, the company offers its LARA cobot to fulfill a range of payload and reach needs. Its mobile robot systems include MAV and MiPA, which feature autonomous mobile robots (AMR) like mobility and mobile manipulation.
“Having an American investor on board creates the perfect conditions for our U.S. market launch in 2024,” CEO David Reger said. “We’re proud to partner with InterAlpen, particularly because Stephen George is truly an entrepreneur-investor. He was an early investor in Tesla, SpaceX, Twitter, and Epic Systems, and can sense the next big thing. InterAlpen believes that forward-looking AI and first-class hardware made in Germany will not only change robotics, but change the world.”
