Roboflow raises $2.1M for its end-to-end computer vision platform – TechCrunch
Roboflow, a startup that aims to simplify the process of building computer vision models, today announced that it has raised a $2.1 million seed round co-led by Lachy Groom and Craft Ventures. As Nelson noted, while the team didn’t set out to build an end-to-end solution, its users kept pushing the team to add more features. The thesis here, Nelson said, is that computer vision is going to be useful for every single industry. “As small cameras become cheaper and cheaper, we’re starting to see an explosion of video and image data everywhere,” Segment co-founder and Roboflow investor French-Owen noted. Roboflow is building the pipelines for the rest of us.
