Tinamu has expanded its seed funding to 2.5 million francs. According to a press release, the existing funds of Alpana Ventures, DAA Capital Partners and Spicehaus Partners all contributed to help accelerate the market launch of the fully digital inspection system that works independently from GPS in indoor and outdoor environments. New private investors also came on board.
With the fully automated drone system, the spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich captures and analyzes data and shares the insights with the user in real-time. Tinamu’s remote sensing solution replaces the need for in-person inspections. This results not only in costs savings for these companies, but also reduces the CO2 footprint significantly.
Founded in 2018, the startup deployed the first functional prototypes in June. Since then, it has already closed annually recurring contracts. Tinamu is currently hiring additional talent that will gear up its go-to-market journey. The team will accelerate product development to bring the early product to a scalable version.
Tobias Nägeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Tinamu, explained that the team are now looking forward to onboarding more companies. “With the additional funding we can reach the next milestones even faster, accelerate the company’s growth and deliver on Tinamu’s promise of safe, reliable and consistent data acquisition.”
