Industrial IoT startup KONUX closes Series A round at $16 million

Munich-based KONUX, an industrial IoT startup, has raised a further $9 million led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA), bringing its Series A round to $16 million.

Several other investors participated in the round including MIG, Upbeat Ventures, Andy Bechtolsheim, Michael Baum, UnternehmerTUM, Warren Weiss, and Lothar Stein.

KONUX develops industrial IoT solutions using smart sensors and AI-based analytics for real time monitoring of assets. It recently began working with German rail operator Deutsche Bahn.

The new funding will be used to further develop its products and enter other European countries.
