Enview closes funding round, releases new SaaS product
Enview, a San Francisco, CA-based company that is pioneering the analysis of 3D geospatial data using artificial intelligence and massively-parallel computing, announced on April 28 that it has closed a round of funding that will enable the company to accelerate development and hiring in support of the public sector.
BrightCap Ventures led the round with participation from Ahoy Capital and existing investors Crosslink Capital and Skype Co-Founder Toivo Annus.
“We are excited to back a highly experienced team with a superior product. There is a demonstrated need to automate the virtualization of the physical world precisely and efficiently and Enview is clearly addressing that need,” commented BrightCap’s Managing Partner Elina Halatcheva.
“We’re proud to have partners who believe and support the vision of Enview and who are enabling us to meet the demands of the market,” said Enview CEO and Co-founder San Gunawardana.
The announcement comes shortly after the company recently entered into a contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to deploy Enview’s AI analytics capabilities for use by the 60th Air Mobility Wing (60 AMW) and was awarded a strategic expansion with the U.S. Air Force. In addition to those efforts is the ability for other groups across the U.S. DoD to align similar requirements and obtain matching funds from the Air Force that accelerate development and deliver core capabilities across different services and missions.
Enview also recently executed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) focused on improving user experiences with LiDAR data and automating 3D GEOINT.
