Veo, a Copenhagen, Denmark-based AI sports camera startup that records sports matches without a camera operator, raised $80 million in Series C funding to support the global expansion of its automated cameras to sports teams.
The round was led by European private equity firm ATP, with participation from existing investors Ventech, Seed Capital, and Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker.
The fund will specifically support Veo's expansion in the United States, where its camera system is already used by more than a half-dozen Major League Soccer clubs.
Veo is the title sponsor of the KDB Cup, the youth soccer tournament formed by Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne. Outside of soccer, the NBA distributed Veo’s cameras for scouting purposes prior to its 2020 draft.
