We just closed an $8 million Series A financing round to enable us to expand. Last year was an incredible year for our community and for Mapillary as a company but we still have a long way to go to realize our vision of visually mapping the world. With this investment, we are in a great position to go all the way. Atomico led this round, with participation from our previous backers Sequoia, LDV Capital, Playfair, and Wellington.
Niklas Zennström, CEO and Founding Partner at Atomico, frames our vision nicely:
“Mapillary is reinventing the way we map and navigate our world. Their ambition is to transform the way we plan our cities, develop transport networks, and understand all parts of the globe.”
We are building a global service for everyone. For people to share stories, places and travels. For organizations to work smarter and understand the world better. We have built an amazing team and we will continue to grow selectively with people who share our vision. This means investing in core computer vision technology, increasing community activities, and improving our tools and applications.
Thank you to our amazing community, our ambassadors, our supporters, our partners. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.
Our plans are just as big as they have always been! Onwards!
