Venture capital financings and exits
$80m worth of financing during this period (median deal size of $5m), including the following noteworthy transactions:
  • Blue River Technology: $17m Series B from Data Collective, Khosla and Innovation Endeavors (Eric Schmidt). The company produces tractor-towed robots that measures plant health and treat weeds to grow crop yields. 
  • WorkFusion: $11.3m Series C for its platform that combines the best of human and machine intelligence to increase workforce productivity and engagement, automate predictable manual work, and improve data quality.
  • Preferred Networks: $8.2m direct investment from Toyota to further its application of deep learning and edge-heavy computing to autonomous vehicles.
