Venture Catalysts Leads Pre-Seed Funding Round For Perceptyne 

Venture Catalysts, an integrated incubator and leader in early-stage investments, announced that it has led a pre-seed funding round for Perceptyne.

This investment round also included participation from several figures in the deeptech hardware start-up community, including Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain of Ather and Pawan Chandana and Bharat Daka of Skyroot Aerospace.

Perceptyne is a deep-tech AI and robotics start-up whose products intend to perform tasks demanding human-like dexterity, such as product assembly, e-commerce packaging, and commercial kitchen operations—areas where traditional robots fall short. 

The company is innovating and building a vertically integrated full-stack robotics platform centered around AI, as per a company statement. 

Raviteja, Co-Founder and CEO of Perceptyne, said, “Our industrial humanoid robots are set to revolutionize industries that have long awaited such innovation.

Automation is increasing in India. The automation market is vast, with a global automation market valued at $18 billion annually and growing at a CAGR of 12.3 percent. In addition, the manufacturing sector in India is poised for rapid growth due to the China+1 strategy and government push-through schemes like PLI. Perceptyne says that it is well positioned to meet the surging demand for automation, both global and domestic.
