The second round of funding- for which Idinvest joins historical investors Alven, Global Founders Capital, White Star Capital, and Aglae Ventures- brings the company’s financing to $60 million in just two years. This new funding will enable to creation of the largest computer vision center in France, as well as the opening of new offices in the United States and Asia.

 

“The fact that our historical investors are renewing their confidence and new supporters are joining the Meero adventure is encouraging us in the strategy we have chosen to pursue,” said Thomas Rebaud, co-founder and CEO of Meero. Alven is certainly looking forward to joining this young tech startup in their journey!
