OxboticaOxbotica, a specialist in autonomous vehicle software, has raised $140 million in Series C investment.The round includes financial and strategic partners from North America, EMEA and APAC, including new investors such as Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Co. and ENEOS Innovation Partners.

Oxbotica has raised approximately $225 million to date. The latest funding will drive its geographical expansion in North America, EMEA and APAC, and accelerate the deployment of its autonomy operating system in domains where there is both urgent need and potential to scale, such as agriculture, airports, energy, goods delivery, mining and shared passenger transportation. 2.

FaibricsFaibrics, which has developed a technology platform that converts CO2 emissions into high value polyester fibers, has raised €17 million from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation Program and €5 million from Partners to the Technology Upscaling Project.The cash will be used to upscale Fairbrics’ technology, first in a pilot line of 100 kg/day by 2024 and later, by 2026, in a 1 ton/day demo plant. The venture has secured partnerships with fashion brands such as H&M, On-Running and Aigle.“By using CO2 emissions instead of fossil resources to manufacture polyester, Fairbrics addresses one of the greatest global challenge, climate change caused greenhouse gas (GHG) emission,” says Benoît Illy, Cofounder and CEO at Fairbrics.“This funding comes as a strong recognition of the work we have accomplished so far, the quality of the consortium we brought together, and the extraordinary potential of our technology to provide highly polluting industries like textile with an alternate environment friendly and economically viable solution.”8. BeontagBeontag, a manufacturer of self-adhesives and smart tags, has closed a debt raise of €120 million. This was secured via Tags Lux Sarl., a wholly owned subsidiary, and through a syndicate of banks led by Deutsche Bank, in support of its international growth.Beontag, which lays claim to being the second largest provider of digital RFID and NFC solutions for some of the world’s biggest fashion and consumer brands, says it expects to achieve €550 million in revenue for 2022, with international and national acquisitions, integrations and expansion contributing to top-line growth from pro forma actualised revenues of more than €400 million in 2021. This is the first significant, international capital raise by the Brazilian founded company, with operations now spanning more than 15 international facilities and a presence in over 40 countries.
