Atomico invests in Beekeeper: Using Saas to connect the unconnected

Atomico

Two billion people – or 80% of the world’s workforce – do not spend their day at a desk. As a result, this massive scattered workforce is often forgotten when it comes to the rapid advances in workplace productivity software the rest of us often take for granted. In many industries, knowledge workers back at HQ get more and more productive while others in the field are often left to fend for themselves.

One of the core problems with workforce communication and management: in the absence of a a corporate email address, how does a security worker talk to HR? How does a cleaner reach out to a colleague or manager?

Aligning employees without email addresses or corporate devices with the entire organisation in a centralised, secure environment is a major challenge. 75% of the non-desk workforce currently use their personal mobile devices to communicate with co-workers, and the lack of functional tools usually forces employees to use consumer-based workarounds like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. Even aside from the obvious management & oversight challenges associated with this, cybersecurity scandals and GDPR compliance drive home the inadequacy of this approach.

Beekeeper has emphatically solved this problem. They’ve built the world’s most flexible secure communication and operations platform for non-desk based and on-demand workers. Powerful tools to allow communication between workers and managers means higher team engagement, a more cohesive culture and reduced turnover.

 

 

Over the last few years, we’ve watched Beekeeper founders Cris & Flavio and their team build a world-class product and exceptional culture. They’ve gone head-to-head with some of the world’s leading employee communications platforms, and won. Repeatedly. They are the perfect example of best in class SaaS products we believe will continue to emerge from Europe at an accelerating pace.

Beekeeper’s approach – which was designed for the hospitality, manufacturing, retail, construction, transport and logistics, food production, NGOs and healthcare industries – takes into account how diverse staff can be today. Employees and managers can communicate across languages and geographies using one unified app. Utilising the latest approaches in machine translation, Beekeeper can translate seamlessly across languages – a feat that would have been impossible just a few years ago.

We were impressed to see the team realize the importance of building security, compliance, and integration at the core of the app, making a point of hiring a veteran executive to lead compliance early in the company’s history. The result is a platform that consistently wins over security conscious yet user experience driven enterprises, from Hilton to Heathrow.

At Atomico, we back founders using technology to rewire the world towards something better for as many people as possible. We believe technology should make a positive impact on everyone’s lives and work.

This is why we are proud to join our friends at Keen Ventures and co-lead Beekeeper’s Series A extension. We’re in good company – a diverse group of strategic investors is enthusiastically joining us, including Samsung NEXT, Edenred Capital Partners and Swiss Post.

Beekeeper joins the stable of enterprise SaaS companies that Atomico is proud to support, including Pipedrive, Bitmovin, and Scandit. One thing they all have in common is that they’ve set the world in their sights from the get-go. Beekeeper calls Switzerland home but already serves customers in 130 countries.

We look forward to helping Cris and the Beekeeper build the category winning company we see them being. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that non “knowledge workers” aren’t left behind by the digital transformation occurring absolutely everywhere.

 

 

IrisVR Brings VR to Construction Industry with First Ever Navisworks Integration to Support BIM

Azure Capital

NEW YORKAug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — IrisVR, the leading immersive design review and collaboration software for the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industries, is thrilled to announce a new native Beta integration between Prospect and Autodesk Navisworks as part of their latest release.

As the first Navisworks plugin built for VR, this integration will deliver a premium immersive experience that puts comfort and performance first. You can expect:

  • Real time performance
  • Low latency
  • Locomotion best practices
  • Access to BIM metadata
  • Experiences running at 90FPS

This new Navisworks beta integration will let construction and engineering teams quickly launch 3D models in VR, meaning faster, more efficient model reviews. The ability to capture issues in the model before construction begins will save thousands of dollars and avoid delays.

While Prospect users have been exporting FBX files from Navisworks and importing them into Prospect for months, the workflow required extra steps that the IrisVR team wanted to eliminate. Now, engineering and construction firms can bring their 3D models into VR with just one click, so they can easily:

  • Perform visual clash detection and evaluate complex systems
  • Review models with accurate spatial relationships and true-to-scale layouts
  • Coordinate trades in 1:1 scale across the project
  • Collect feedback from construction and operations staff
  • Improve collaboration and communication among teams

“While the architecture community and some construction firms have been early adopters of VR, the Navisworks plugin now enables construction teams to perform design review, QA/QC, and coordination in 1:1 scale, taking out the ambiguity of 2D coordination and driving much clearer communication,” says IrisVR Co-founder and CEO, Shane Scranton.

The first beta release supports a basic geometry and file structure export that will allow you to select individual elements in VR. IrisVR is already working to expand these capabilities to provide support for full BIM data, advanced clash detection, project timeline tools, and more. For a look at how the Navisworks plugin works watch this quick video.

IrisVR Co-founder and CTO, Nate Beatty, says of the Navisworks integration launch, “Over the next few months the IrisVR team will continue investing in the development of this integration, focusing on improving the efficiency and expanding the capabilities. We strive to make VR model reviews and project planning as intuitive, efficient, and productive as possible – and we will do our best to deliver on that promise.”

The new Prospect release also includes other features beyond the Navisworks integration that enhance design review workflows for AEC professionals. A new feature will allow users to hide or unhide any selected element which provides greater visibility into the inner workings of a building. Improved teleportation with a door fade feature, section capping, and Multiuser Meeting host controls are also included in this launch.

Prospect is available on a monthly or annual subscription basis, with three pricing tiers starting at $50/month. The Navisworks plugin is available to customers on any tier.

AEC firms across 105 countries have been using Prospect to improve design communication internally and with clients, speed up design approvals, collaborate with teams all over the world, and coordinate across disciplines. For more information and to start a free 45-day trial of Prospect, visit irisvr.com.

Kpn Ventures

ROTTERDAM, July 31, 2018 – Dutch corporate investment fund KPN Ventures announced today it has participated as lead investor in the $3.5m seed round of ZecOps, a cyber security startup based in San Francisco and Tel Aviv, focusing on automated threat analysis.

ZecOps seed round is supplemented by an investment from Evolution Equity Partners, a fund that specializes in cybersecurity, Plug and Play Silicon ValleyWISE VenturesArray Ventures, and respected angel investors.

ZecOps was started in July 2017 by Zuk Avraham together with his wife & co-founder, Taly Slachevsky. ZecOps is Avraham’s second entrepreneurial journey. He founded his first company, Zimperium, in 2010, where he currently serves as its Chairman of the Board. Zimperium is the leading mobile threat defense solution on the market.

ZecOps products gained high traction during its first year, while still in stealth-mode, with well-known customers from the technology, finance and telecom segments. ZecOps is working with law enforcement agencies, banks, critical infrastructure, tech, payment solutions and telcos to solve major pain points in cyber security.

“Through KPN’s cooperation with Zimperium, We have got to know Zuk as a clear thought leader in cyber security” said Herman Kienhuis, EVP and Managing Director at KPN Ventures.“With ZecOps, he is taking on a new challenge: automating security breach analysis; we see great potential in enabling more companies to learn from attacks, generate new threat intelligence and substantially improve their security.”

Michal Pechoucek, Partner at Evolution Equity Partners, adds: “Increased efficiencies gained from automation in security operations is an important area in cybersecurity where Zecops have developed cutting edge technology. We believe the attributes of the Zecops technology are unique and provide the company with a cutting-edge advantage in the global marketplace. We welcome Zecops and its team of seasoned cybersecurity professionals to our portfolio.”

“We are extremely excited to welcome ZecOps into our family.  Out of the hundreds of cybersecurity startups we analyzed this year, ZecOps stood out as one of the most exciting,” says George Damouny, Partner at Plug and Play Ventures. “With their strong team and expertise in the cybersecurity space, we have high expectations for ZecOps as they continue to revolutionize the Security Operations market.”

Our investment in Lime: Maximising micro-mobility

No Comments

Atomico

Today, we’re delighted to announce our investment in Lime. Led by co-founders Brad Bao and Toby Sun, Lime is an organisation driving behavioural change at mass scale and lightning speed.

We set out to back founders who can address the world’s biggest challenges, and improve the way we live. Moving more people more frequently, decongesting cities, and improving air quality for those who live there, are certainly monumental challenges. Lime’s e-bikes and scooters tackle them in a sustainable, affordable, and convenient way.

At Atomico, as mobility continues to be disrupted, we are looking to back multiple solutions – especially if consumers love it and it is better for the city too. One of those areas is micro-mobility.

 

The ability to unlock, jump on and off Lime’s distinctive electric scooters anywhere is already delighting city-dwellers in over 70 locations across the US. In San Francisco, each of the company’s scooters is used an average of nine times a day.  It is clear the ‘form factor’ of the electric scooter is going to be a hit for shorter journeys where ride-hailing, public transport or even walking is not quite right.

The team has ambitious plans for European expansion, and we are proud to be their European investor as they scale to our continent. We’re joining the deal with other global investors GV, Andreessen Horowitz and Uber, whose excitement for Lime we share.

This is the ideal juncture for Atomico to partner with Lime. In the last decade, we’ve developed Atomico into a platform for sharing operational experience with our portfolio companies. We’re privileged to work with Brad and Toby, and excited to put our hard-won experience to work for Lime.

 

KPN Ventures initiates Health Innovation Fund III, together with Menzis, Monuta and OostNL

 

After two previous successful funds, the third Health Innovations venture capital fund has been initiated to support innovative healthcare start-ups in developing their products and bringing them to the market. In the coming years, the fund will invest € 15 million in 10 to 15 starting tech companies. The fund is focused on innovative digital health solutions that keep healthcare affordable and improve the quality and accessibility of care.

Investors include KPN Ventures, Menzis, Monuta, Topfonds Gelderland, Oost NL and several private investors. The fund is further supported by the Ministries of Health and Economic Affairs. Together, they are investing 6 million euros from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency’s Seed Capital Scheme.

The investors will be contributing their expertise and networks to the fund and the health start-ups in order to increase their chances of success.

Focus on innovation in healthcare

The Health Innovation Fund III will invest in companies that have developed new products to make healthcare smarter, better and more accessible. These can be software, hardware and service solutions, as long as they are directed towards prevention, diagnosis, treatment or cure or care monitoring. Joris van Eijck, Director Healthcare at Menzis, emphasizes the importance of innovation in healthcare:

“The application of new technology means, for example, that patients can live at home longer or receive care in their familiar environment, rather than in the hospital. Technology gives healthcare a fundamentally different form and creates value for patients.”

This third Health Innovation fund will also explicitly target e-Health solutions that foster self-management, self-monitoring and self-reliance. The first two funds have already made 18 investments in promising companies, including Prolira, LivAssured, Nightbalance, ANW Nederland, Noviosense and Aidence.

According to the partners involved, innovation is not only required for keeping healthcare affordable, but can also further improve the quality of healthcare. As important stakeholders in the sector, they want to accelerate this process. That’s why, in addition to making resources available, they will also utilize their expertise and network to support the start-up enterprises. Herman Kienhuis from KPN Ventures confirms this: “Digital technology offers enormous opportunities to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare and to increase people’s self-reliance, also in the case of illness and old age. KPN wants to take on an important role in this field and seeks out and supports young tech companies to jointly develop innovations, also through its partnership with the Health Innovation Fund III.”

Organization

The Health Innovation Fund III is managed by Utrecht-based Health Innovations. The fund is supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Climate and by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. In December 2017, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency selected the fund for its SEED Capital arrangement by means of a tender process. Secretary of State Keijzer from Economic Affairs and Climate, responsible for financing: “The production of new medical devices, for example for making diagnoses or for carrying out complex medical analyses, is good for the quality of healthcare and for our economic development. Investing in e-Health benefits us all and especially the people who need this care. With the SEED Capital scheme, we are supporting innovative entrepreneurs who can develop these ideas.”

It increases the objectivity of the diagnostic process and therefore delivers an improved diagnosis combined with more efficient processes, positively impacting a large group of patients. We see large international growth opportunities for the company and we are proud to be a part of this development.” says Ewout Prins, Managing Partner Holland Venture.

Francis Quint, Head InnovationQuarter Capital: “Quantib facilitates faster, better and more efficient diagnoses, a fantastic result from the close collaboration with Erasmus MC.
