Funding and Acquisitions SA’s Sensor Networks secures $1m funding By Incubate Africa Posted on May 9, 2018 0 0 South Africa based IoT platform Sensor Networks has secured another round of funding with UDS 1.03 Mn led by 4DiCapital, Sanari Capital and Asisa ESD. “As a private equity firm, our focus is on businesses scaling and executing well through their growth stage. Despite Sensor Network’s ‘young age’, the company has gained significant traction with its products, and we’re confident that now is the right time to get involved,” said Sanari Capital chief executive officer (CEO) and founder Samantha Pokroy. Sensor Networks founder founder Mark Allewell said the startup believed the future success of insurers lies in their ability to build effective predictive analytics and look at the individual customer risk in a completely new way. He said it had been an “amazing” journey so far. “We’ve seen a lot of excitement for our existing product range, and importantly have already proven how smart sensors can be a direct cost-saving measure for customers and insurance companies,” Allewell said. This funding is a feather in the startup’s cap, he said. “Our goal is to be the pre-eminent African IoT insurance platform, and having Sanari, The ASISA ESD Fund and 4Di on-board at this stage gives us access to valuable insurance insights and a vast array of business experience and networks,” said Allewell.
