As a true tech-sector insider, I do some consulting for Aitonomi, a European startup working on autonomous delivery vehicles guided by artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
In other words: robots.
And thanks to that personal involvement with (and personal interest in) the robotics field, I pay careful attention to the latest technological advances - as well as the mergers and financing deals that make it all possible.
I do this because I understand that mergers are one way for a startup with promising technologies to get access to the cash, know-how, and other resources needed to grow - not to mention that these deals allow the original investors to reap the benefits of their efforts.
And funding deals not only give startups the capital "fuel" they need for growth, but they also serve as a "stamp of approval" signaling other financiers that it's OK to invest.
Let's look at the latest deals. I'll not only tell you what they mean, but I'll also show you a great way to cash in on the powerful robotics trend - starting right now.
