Croatian unicorn Infobip invest in robotics startup STEMI
Founded in 2006 in Croatia, last year Infobip became the latest unicorn in the region. Specialized in omnichannel communication and customer engagement technology, Infobip offers a variety of solutions to help corporate clients communicate with customers through text messages or third-party apps such as WhatsApp.
Now, Infobip gives back to the local ecosystem by supporting Rijeka robotics startup STEMI. Infobip, together with Damir Sabol, has invested in the company which successfully developed the very first Croatian educational robot. Details revolving around the investment have not been disclosed but Stemi has stated that they are preparing a big surprise for the end of September.
STEMI aims to “prepare students for the 21st century tech industry and has been heavily involved in the promotion of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in education.
“We want to transform people from consumers of technology into creators and innovators. One of our long-term goals is to help kids learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically – from the youngest age,” states the official website of STEMI.
STEMI has been conquering and successfully developing in the USA. In June this year, the company added schools in Virginia and Georgia to the Robotics & Automated Systems program family.
At the beginning of September 2021, STEMI won the “Most likely to be a unicorn” award at Infobip’s Startup Tribe, the largest developer conference in Southeastern Europe.
