InMotion Ventures backs self-driving taxi startup Voyage
InMotion Ventures announced a $3 million investment in US-based self-driving taxi service Voyage.
The backing will support Voyage in developing a global service, with the aim that anyone can summon an autonomous vehicle to their door and reach their destination safely. Voyage has already trialled its self-driving taxi service in a gated community in San Jose, California. The company is licensed to test self-driving cars on Californian roads in 2018 and is refining its technology and service with feedback from users.
In this funding round, we invested alongside Khosla Ventures, SV Angel, Initialized Capital, Amino Capital and Charles River Ventures.
“We are thrilled to have support from InMotion Ventures in this successful funding round,” says Oliver Cameron, Chief Executive of Voyage. “The investment will help our business grow in technical and operational expertise, as we expand into new communities globally. This is an exciting year for us with further passenger trials planned.”
“We are excited to be working with Oliver Cameron and his world-class team at Voyage,” says Sebastian Peck, Managing Director of InMotion Ventures. “We believe they have the technical capability and the right partnership model to quickly make self-driving taxis a reality in many residential communities.”
The first InMotion investment of 2018, Voyage is the 12th company to join our mobility and transport venture portfolio.
