by Kay Aloha Villamor in November 30th, 2022

Heex Technologies, a Paris, France-based deeptech startup that provides data management for autonomous vehicles, raised €3.2 million in pre-seed funding.

The round was led by Paris-based VC Karista, with participation from Techstars, Google Black Founders Fund, and Bpifrance, alongside top business angels such as Alexei Chemenda. 

The funds will be used to support product R&D and acquire the first customers. 

Bruno Mendes Da Silva, co-founder, and CEO says, "We are looking forward to the upcoming months as we want to scale the company to address data-intensive businesses and enable their adoption of Smart Data. Data now has a bigger footprint than the aviation industry, and it’s just getting started. Additionally, we are committed to fostering sustainability by massively delivering our technology, with the world becoming more conscious about being efficient to slow global warming.”

Heex Technologies has developed an event-driven approach to automate the push of relevant data (the Smart Data) to the right teams within their organization via their intuitive web platform. It assists development teams with a more efficient and faster development process to develop better autonomous vehicles.

The company works with programs based in the United States, such as Plug in Play, Microsoft for Startups, and Nvidia's Inception program.
