Walder Wyss advised ANYbotics AG on CHF 20m Series A Round

3 December 2020 – On 2 December 2020, ANYbotics, a leading maker of four-legged robots, announced the closing of its CHF 20 million series A financing round. The financing round was led by Swisscom Ventures and included the participation of several co-investors such as Ace & Company and Equity Pitcher. The newly raised funds will serve to accelerate the commercialization of the company’s autonomous robots for industrial inspection.

ANYbotics spun out in 2016 from ETH Zurich and works with a team of over 50 employees on developing, producing, and deploying full-stack robotic solutions. In September 2020, ANYbotics won the Swiss Economic Award in the category Hightech/Biotech at the Swiss Economic Forum 2020. The Swiss Economic Award is the most important young entrepreneur prize in Switzerland.

Walder Wyss advised ANYbotics in connection with this transaction. The team was led by Alex Nikitine (Partner, Corporate/M&A) and included Dominik Aerni (Senior Associate, Corporate/M&A) and Hugh Reeves (Managing Associate, IP/IT).
