Deep-tech AI firm Myelin Foundry has announced the raising of USD 4 million in a new round from SIDBI Venture Capital Limited (SVCL). Subh Labh, Pratithi Investment Trust, and Endiya Partners are among the other investors.

It had raised USD 3 million in its Series A round last year, with Visteon Corporation and other investors leading the way.

The Bengaluru-based startup will use the fresh capital to strengthen its AI platforms, expand its footprint in international markets, and solidify its position in the edge AI sector.

Katragadda, Founder and CEO of Myelin Foundry, said, "This investment reaffirms confidence in Myelin's growth trajectory and the potential of our Edge AI and Gen AI platforms. We look forward to working closely with our valued partners to accelerate our journey of transforming industries with edge AI solutions."

Founded in 2019 by Gopichand Katragadda and Ganesh Suryanarayanan, Myelin Foundry builds AI algorithms on voice, video, and sensor data for edge devices, enabling the deployment of AI solutions across multiple industries.

Its platforms use artificial intelligence (AI) at the edge in real-time to deliver video and audio experiences, meeting the needs of global automotive and over-the-top (OTT) platforms that want to use the technology in their automotive and customer devices.

"We are excited to lead Myelin Foundry's current equity round and support their vision of deploying AI solutions at the edge. Myelin's innovative approach and strong leadership position them well to place Indian startups on the global AI map," said Debraj Banerjee, Senior Fund Manager at SVCL.
