The financing was co-led by new investor Stratim Capital and D.E. Shaw & Co., and included Altierre’s existing investors ATA Ventures, DuPont Capital Management, Labrador Ventures and Kinetic Ventures.
“Our proprietary wireless technology is installed at thousands of retailers’ stores today and this financing will provide the necessary resources to expand that to thousands more,” said Altierre Chairman and CEO Sunit Saxena. “We are now well capitalized to lead the charge in bringing the Internet of Things to retail aisles globally and enhance efficiencies within retail stores.”
“We are glad to join Altierre’s stellar group of investors,” said Zach Abrams, founder and managing partner with Stratim Capital. “There is a large market opportunity for Altierre to expand efforts with their low power wireless platform and applications, and this additional financing will help the company further penetrate the price and promotion automation process while enabling personalized marketing opportunities within the global retail market place.”
