GLOBHE closes seed round of 20 MSEK to accelerate access to climate data from drones globally


VEQ investee company GLOBHE just closed their seed round, and we’re happy to welcome new investors such as Course Corrected and MIT onboard. We invested in GLOBHE in August 2021 and we’re happy to participate in the seed round as well.

”The time for planet action is yesterday. But action requires data. We have seen an increased interest this year from actors worldwide, which means sales and impact numbers are taking off. We are going from a startup to a scaleup, and on that journey, you need increased capital, cutting-edge knowledge, and investors who share your mission. I’m thrilled to have found that in our Nordic and American impact tech investors,” says Helena Samsioe, Founder and CEO of GLOBHE.

GLOBHE’s innovative product, the SaaS platform Crowddroning by GLOBHE, connects its global crowd of local drone operators with businesses, organizations, and researchers in need of high-resolution earth observation data. The data is vital to understand the world and take action towards a more sustainable future.

Currently, Crowddroning connects to 6000+ local drone operators in 117 countries, and the numbers are increasing daily. Clients range from organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank to clean energy and big data companies.

“The work that the GLOBHE team does is very important – they’re creating true positive impact for people all over the world and the whole planet. We’re proud to continue to support them on their growth journey.” – Our VEQ Partner Maria Bergsten.
