Air taxi Volocopter takes off with €5 million funding for urban mobility

Commentary

After its Dubai test flight last September, Volocopter raised €5 million in another funding round led by Intel and btov Partners. Volocopter draws deep inspiration from rising urbanization for its alternative mobility carrier. The Volocopter 2X aircraft has been designed with features much fitted for an urban air taxi – ultralight, quiet, electric, and it allows for a vertical takeoff, which enables a runway-free takeoff.  Moreover, its intelligent system can facilitate air-taxi hailing services with the use of smartphones.  Recently, developments in the aero-tech space have sparked interest and demand in the flying car sector. For example, Dubai’s flying taxi tests form part of the city’s goal to have autonomous cars handling 25% of passenger transport by 2030.  Meanwhile, Uber’s Elevate Summit held last April kicked off its aviation-on-demand project by partnering with Bell Helicopter and Aurora Flight Services, among others. 

Xingbianli raises $57 million for its checkout-free retail platform

Commentary

China’s retail landscape is taking a new face with checkout-free stores like Bingobox, Xiaomai, and F5 Stores having brought in more than $55 million capital since the start of 2017. Last week, Shanghai-based Xingbianli raised $57 million in Series A round following its $14 million angel funding just last September.  But what sets Xingbianli apart to lead the competition is its targeted marketing combined with urbanized coverage. Currently, it runs eight checkout-free convenience stores and over 10,000 unmanned snack bars deployed in offices, including Internet companies like Alibaba, Baidu, and Ctrip, which are situated across 15 cities in China. Xingbianli’s retail platform which allows customers to shop with a QR account code and payment options via Alipay and WeChat Pay is also well supported by the team’s solid competencies in supply chain and big data. The advanced shopping technology is something investors are banking on in China’s new retail sector which generated revenues of $23 billion in 2016 alone.
