Happy Hour @ HQB

从零到一 澳谷智能华强北圆梦

完成2350 万融资背后的故事

From Zero to One: August Robotics @ HQB

近期热门关键词是“一带一路”、“粤港澳大湾区”、“深港科创走廊”,如果要用一个故事清楚说明这些重要政策及趋势,澳谷智能(August Robotics)首席执行官卫礼斯(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,卫礼斯孤身到香港成立澳谷智能,经过调研,他决定在深圳市福田区华强北这个世界最大电子市场,成立他的研发中心。在华强北,他选择了国家级的众创空间—-赛格众创空间。

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.

选择华强北其中一个重要原因,是这里可以找到更多国内国际高手工程师,以及有100万种电子产品及元器件任君选择,赛格广场本身便是一个巨大的电子市场,整个街区有42座超过5000平米的电子市场,建模非常有效率,生产线则可以在粤港澳大湾区多个工业城市中选择。

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.

 卫礼斯一个人来香港、一个人来深圳,至今团队已有10多人,上月喜讯传来,公司已完成其种子轮融资,融资规模达 2350 万人民币。

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

 

此次种子轮融资由澳大利亚风投机构-– 黑鸟创投领投,并有多位知名技术创始人和投资者的加入。其中包括Atlassian 联合创始人Mike Cannon-Brookes (其投资通过私人投资公司Grok 完成),风险投资家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.

澳谷智能将利用此轮基金建立一个机器人研发中心,该研发中心将继续开发公司一系列特种机器人。同时,部分基金将被用于加强公司在海外目标市场的国际销售及客户服务能力。

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.
