Funded in Colorado
Innosphere Ventures’ “Funded in Colorado” Series showcases success stories of companies that recently closed a funding round. In these 15 minute episodes, founders share their lessons learned on attracting and raising capital, provide advice to other entrepreneurs and CEOs, and explain what worked (and what didn’t) in hopes of helping more companies close financing rounds.
In this inaugural “Funded in Colorado” episode, Innosphere Ventures CEO Mike Freeman sits down with Timothy Morrissey, co-founder & CEO of Artimus Robotics about the recent closing of their seed investment round from Heroic Ventures and Hunt Technology Ventures. This investment, combined with Artimus’ extensive non-dilutive grant funding from the NSF and Colorado’s OEDIT Advanced Industries grant, provides Artimus with capital as they address challenges facing the industrial automation, defense, and manufacturing industries.
Here at Innosphere, we recognize that one of the major challenges facing startups today is raising capital. Closing a round of financing is one of the biggest wins a founders or CEO can accomplish in the early stages of building a high-growth company. We’re excited to bring these “Funded in Colorado” conversations to life in a completely non-edited, raw and real conversation.
