Happy Hour @ HQB

從零到一 澳谷智能華強北圓夢

完成2350 萬融資背後的故事

From Zero to One: August Robotics @ HQB

近期熱門關鍵詞是“一帶一路”、“粵港澳大灣區”、“深港科創走廊”,如果要用一個故事清楚說明這些重要政策及趨勢,澳谷智能(August Robotics)首席執行官衛禮斯(Alex WYATT) 是最佳的故事主角。

“Belt and Road”, “Greater Bay Area” and “Shenzhen Hong STI Corridor” are the keywords recently but not everyone familiar with them. Alex WYATT, CEO of August Robotics has great stories to tell.

2017 年4月,衛禮斯孤身到香港成立澳谷智能,經過調研,他決定在深圳市福田區華強北這個世界最大電子市場,成立他的研發中心。在華強北,他選擇了國家級的衆創空間—-賽格衆創空間。

Alex arrived Hong Kong from Australia in April 2017 all by himself, set up the reprehensive office in Hong Kong and then he chose Huaqiangbei, Futian, Shenzhen for the R&D center. His choice in Huaqiangbei is SegMaker+, the national grade makerspace.

選擇華強北其中一個重要原因,是這裏可以找到更多國內國際高手工程師,以及有100萬種電子産品及元器件任君選擇,賽格廣場本身便是一個巨大的電子市場,整個街區有42座超過5000平米的電子市場,建模非常有效率,生産線則可以在粵港澳大灣區多個工業城市中選擇。

One of the major reason for choosing Huaqiangbei is he can find a lot of experienced engineers, both national and international, and there are one million choices of electronic goods and components. He can find the components just downstairs of the SegMaker+ with totally 42 electronic malls in Huaqiangbei like SEG Plaza. He and his team can have the prototyping and manufacturing in the Greater Bay Area.

 衛禮斯一個人來香港、一個人來深圳,至今團隊已有10多人,上月喜訊傳來,公司已完成其種子輪融資,融資規模達 2350 萬人民幣。

Alex is no more alone and has 10+ colleagues now and got the great breakthrough last month.

此次種子輪融資由澳大利亞風投機構-– 黑鳥創投領投,並有多位知名技術創始人和投資者的加入。其中包括Atlassian 聯合創始人Mike Cannon-Brookes (其投資通過私人投資公司Grok 完成),風險投資家Roger Allen 和知名商人John Wylie。

August Robotics closed its oversubscribed US$3.7 million (RMB 23.5 million) seed funding round. The seed financing was led by Blackbird Ventures, and was joined by a number of well-known technology founders and investors, including Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes (through his private investment company Grok Ventures), venture capital veteran Roger Allen and prominent businessman John Wylie.

澳谷智能將利用此輪基金建立一個機器人研發中心,該研發中心將繼續開發公司一系列特種機器人。同時,部分基金將被用于加強公司在海外目標市場的國際銷售及客戶服務能力。

August Robotics will use the funds from the seed round to build a dedicated robot research & development centre in southern China, where the company will continue the development of its suite of specialised robots. Proceeds from the round will also be used to facilitate international expansion and build sales & customer servicing capabilities in August Robotics’ target markets overseas.
