oculai, a Munich, Germany-based startup developing AI-based tech that automates process and progress monitoring for construction sites, secured €2.5 million in a seed funding round led by High-Tech Gründerfonds.
Additional backers include Bayern Kapital and Axeleo Capital. The Leonard Accelerator program also took part, alongside renowned private investors.
With this new funding, the plan is to accelerate the adoption of the tech on construction sites.
Constantin Kauffmann, Co-Founder and CEO of oculai: “Now more than ever, the transformation of the construction industry into intelligent production systems is becoming increasingly important. That’s something we’re also seeing in the resonance our product is generating. With this fresh tailwind, we can capitalize on this momentum and make major leaps.”
oculai has developed a solution to automate process and progress monitoring for construction sites. Currently, the solution is primarily being utilized in shell construction, along with some initial infrastructure projects.
