Topolytics, a Scottland, UK-based company that provides a data analytics platform, secured £1.5 million in funding.
The investment was from seven individual investors with experience scaling data analytics and Software as a Service (SaaS) businesses as well as a grant from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
The Scottish startup will use the funds to launch its WasteMap solution and support its UK and international expansion plans.
“Topolytics has a growing global reputation for the insights available through our WasteMap platform. It helps waste producers and recyclers to drive resource and cost efficiencies, traces the movement of waste, and measures their impact, whilst validating performance and improving the quality and reliability of ESG and carbon reporting. It is a privilege to be working with some leading players in their sectors, UK and international businesses alike, that see great commercial and environmental benefit from taking a fresh look at waste,” said Michael Groves, CEO of Topolytics.
The company’s WasteMap platform enables organizations to track their waste and helps them reduce their carbon footprint and generate new revenue streams by building circular economies.
WasteMap uses mapping and machine learning to make waste and resource management more transparent and efficient.
Additionally, these insights enable greater materials recovery, support investment strategies, and reduce carbon emissions through WasteChain.
