Spark.io Raises $4.9 Million #makerbusiness #oshw @sparkdevices


Spark.io Raises $4.9 Million to Help Engineers Make Their Devices Smart – Venture Capital Dispatch – WSJ.

Lion Wells Capital and O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures led the Series A investment in Spark.io, joined by Collaborative Fund and SOSventures.

According to Spark.io founder and Chief Executive Zach Supalla, the startup earlier raised $700,000 in seed funding from HAXLR8R, SOS Ventures and a group of individual angel investors. The new funding brings its total capital raised to $4.9 million.

We believe this now makes Spark.io the latest venture backed open-source hardware company.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
