Daily Crunch: Ransomware group threatens to release Nvidia’s ‘most closely guarded secrets’
Infrastructure is broken, Gecko is using robotics to help fix it
Gecko Robotics’ mission statement is “To protect today’s critical infrastructure, and give form to tomorrow’s.” It’s certainly the sort of thing that rings true in the startup’s home town of Pittsburgh, where the Fern Hollow Bridge collapsed under the weight of five vehicles in late-January, the day President Biden was visiting to talk infrastructure. Gecko’s combination of robotics and software solutions is designed to discover cracks and other problem areas before they become much bigger problems. The round was led by XN LP and features Founders Fund, Drive Capital, Snowpoint Ventures, Joe Lonsdale, Mark Cuban and Gokul Rajaram.
